data(HairEyeColor)
a <- as.table( apply(HairEyeColor, c(1,2), sum) )
# Provided Example
barplot(a, beside = TRUE,
legend.text = attr(a, "dimnames")$Hair)
# I would like to make the labels on the x-axis diagonal, so I tried the following:
barplot_reference<-barplot(a, beside = TRUE,
legend.text = attr(a, "dimnames")$Hair,
xaxt = "n", xlab = "")
text(barplot_reference, par("usr")[3] - 0.09, srt = 45, adj = 1,
labels = as.character(colnames(a)), xpd = TRUE, offset = 1,
col = "black")
# The labels are diagonal, but unfortunately the eye color labels are now applied to every bar and then repeat.
# Is there any way to correct this problem, so that the diagonal labels are only the following:
Brown, Blue, Hazel, Green
# Those labels should not be repeated, so any help and insight is greatly appreciated.
