Bar Chart

A barplot shows the relationship between a numeric and a categoric variable. Each entity of the categoric variable is represented as a bar. The size of the bar represents its numeric value. Barplot is sometimes described as a boring way to visualize information. However it is probably the most efficient way to show this kind of data. Ordering bars and providing good annotation are often necessary.
