Lollipop Chart

A lollipop plot is basically a barplot, where the bar is transformed in a line and a dot. It shows the relationship between a numeric and a categoric variable. However it is more appealing and convey as well the information. It is especially useful when you have several bars of the same height: it avoids to have a cluttered figure and a Moiré effect. The Cleveland dot plot is a handy variation, allowing to compare the value of 2 numeric values for each group.
