R Question

I have a data frame with 3 variables and 260 rows. (Sample below)

`HouseID<-c(1:10)`

Town<-c("D","A","B","C","A","B","C","C","C","A")

Occupants<-c(5,3,2,4,5,2,3,8,1,3)

df<-data.frame(HouseID,Town,Occupants)

HouseID Town Occupants

1 D 5

2 A 3

3 B 2

4 C 4

5 A 5

6 B 2

7 C 3

8 C 8

9 C 1

10 A 3

I want to create a box plot for the distribution of Occupants with the order of x-axis based on the descending order of frequencies of Towns

`Town Freq`

A 3

B 2

C 4

D 1

(Shown a sample image)

I tried sorting the data frame, but still, the box plot x-axis is displayed based on alphabetical order by default. Is there a way I could do this?
