Hooray for Spring Break! I finally have a few minutes of “What programming do you do on the side?” time to take on my first #TidyTuesday. This week the data set was about pets in the Seattle area.


df <- read_excel("SeattlePetNames.xlsx")

My silly example will be about the first initial of the pets’ names, and then faceted by cats or dogs.

df %>%
  mutate(initial = str_to_upper(str_sub(animals_name, 1,1))) %>%
  filter(species %in% c("Cat", "Dog")) %>%
  ggplot(aes(x = initial, fill = initial)) +
    geom_bar(stat = "count") +
    facet_grid(rows = vars(species)) +
    labs(title = "Tidy Tuesday (March 26, 2019)",
         subtitle = "by Derek Sollberger",
         caption = "Data source: Seattle's open data portal") +
    theme(legend.position = "none")
