R Question

Conditional grouped barplot R

I am trying to make a

barplot
in R for two categorical variables,
Dep_meds_at_time_of_rx_2
and
phq9_cat
.
phq9_cat
has two levels,
0
and
1
, where
0
corresponds to
PHQ-L
and
1
corresponds to
PHQ-H
.

Here is my code:

# get counts of vars
counts <- table(data2$Dep_meds_at_time_of_rx_2, data2$phq9_cat)

# get percentages of vars
pcnts <- scale(counts, FALSE, colSums(counts))*100

# plot barplot
bp <- barplot(pcnts, beside=TRUE, col=c("azure3", "azure4"), ylab="Frequency (%)", border=NA)
legend("topright", legend=c("PHQ-L", "PHQ-H"), bty="n", fill=c("azure3", "azure4"), border=NA)
text(bp, 1, round(pcnts, 2), cex=1, pos=3, col=c("black"))


And the resulting plot:

Which is great! But I need to only plot the
data2$Dep_meds_at_time_of_rx_2==1
category. So I would like a barplot with only the
3.03
bar and the
19.44
bar.

I've exhausted any clever tricks that I know of already such as making the
data2$Dep_meds_at_time_of_rx_2==0
bars white and using
space = c(-1, 0)
to make the
data2$Dep_meds_at_time_of_rx_2==1
bars next to one another but then the bars are super wide, like so:

I just need the
data2$Dep_meds_at_time_of_rx_2==1
columns, but at a normal width.

Any ideas?

Here is my data:

> dput(data2)
structure(list(Dep_meds_at_time_of_rx_2 = c(0L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 0L,
0L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 1L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 0L, 0L,

Answer

Here is a minor revision of what you have. I think it gets close to accomplishing what you want:

bp <- barplot(pcnts[2,], beside=TRUE, col=c("azure3", "azure4"), ylab="Frequency (%)",
              border=NA)
legend("topleft", legend=c("PHQ-L", "PHQ-H"), bty="n", fill=c("azure3", "azure4"), border=NA)
text(bp[], 1, round(pcnts[2,], 2), cex=1, pos=3, col=c("black"))
