R graphics cookbook

Jeremy Chacon
Hello,

you've probably already figured it out, but the error is because you are
telling ggplot to use an x variable which doesn't exist:

ggplot(data, aes(x=year_bis,y=area)) + geom_bar(stat="identity"

year_bis is not a column in the data frame you show us, if you change it to:

ggplot(data, aes(x=year,y=area)) + geom_bar(stat="identity")

it should work.
