I can't get the graph I want.
I asked how often ppl eat certain foods. Every food variable has 5 values assigned to it. The values are all the same for all the food variables. I want a stacked graph that shows all the food variables on the x-axis and the counts for each values on the y-axis. The variables are assigned to be ordinal (?) since the frequency of how often each food variable is consumed is not continuous. The "distance" between each frequency is not the same.
To make it clear, i.e.: How often do you consume chocolate?
<1x/month ---> 1
2-3x/month ---> 2
1-2x/week ---> 3
3-4x/week ---> 4
>5x/week ---> 5
Am I right to set them as ordinal? If I set them as scale, I can get a graph with all the food items on x but then it displays the i.e. the mean of the values on y, which is not the right answer to my question. I'd be happy is someone could help me out, I couldn't find an answer on how to do this graph correctly, so far. Thanks!
