How to create a histogram with Y-axis values as count using ggplot2 in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To create a histogram with Y-axis values as count using ggplot2 in R, we can follow the below steps −

  • First of all, create a data frame.
  • Then, use geom_histogram function of ggplot2 package with aes to create the histogram with Y-axis values as count.

Create the data frame

Let's create a data frame as shown below −

 Live Demo

> df<-data.frame(x=rnorm(5000))
> head(df,20)

On executing, the above script generates the below output(this output will vary on your system due to randomization) −

          x
1    -0.008015477
2    -0.981227322
3     1.144050354
4     0.207177231
5     0.179782914

Create a histogram with Y-axis values as count using ggplot2

Using geom_histogram function of ggplot2 package to create the histogram with Y-axis values as count for the data in data frame df −

> df<-data.frame(x=rnorm(5000))
> library(ggplot2)
> ggplot(df,aes(x))+geom_histogram(aes(y=..count..*10),bins=30)

Output
