Re: [R] Quick question: Does this graph have a name?

Thanks a lot for all your replies so far!

I now share your feeling that this might not be the best way to show the data.

Here's what the data is about: We have search engine queries (12,000 of them), which are grouped into semantic categories. (Some ask for a "Person", some are about celebrity "Gossip" etc., you can see this on the x-axis.)

Then we asked three subjects for each query, how they think the query should best be answered, we were mainly interested in the preferred length of the response (y-axis: With a "phrase", a "sentence", a text "paragraph" etc.)

We want to show in this graph,
1) that users indeed think that queries from different semantic categories should be answered with responses of different lengths. (That a Yes/No answer basically.)
2) how the different length categories are distributed in the individual semantic categories.

I hope this was somewhat clear..?
