This question already has an answer here:
I have a dataset that is something like this:
A, B, C, D, E
1, 2, 3, 4, 5
2, 3, 4, 5, 6
3, 4, 5, 6, 7
I want to make a ggplot2 graph in R that is a boxplot where each box corresponds to a letter. According to what I researched, the way to do this is having something like this as dataset:
The original dataset doesn't need to have the same amount of elements for each box actually
. Is there any way to a) do the boxplot with the original dataset without changing it, using ggplot2 (not the builtin boxplot of R), this is what I really want, if there is no way, then: b) transform one dataset to another with R?
P.S. (I don't know if I can ask this in the same question, if no, I am very sorry) If you know any good tutorial for beginners in ggplot2, that actually teaches how to use ggplot instead of qplot, I would appreciate it a lot. Thank you again!
