Plot.ly Graph

Oregon Corrections and Other Holding FacilitiesMy chart is a histogram. It shows what cities in Oregon have corrections or holding facilities and how many they have, and I think it does an OK job of doing that.  I plan to write my essay on how there are too many incarcerations in this country, specifically for not violent offenses.  There are a few problems with it. For starters, there are too many cities on the X-axis. There are so many that if couldn’t fit all of their names on the label. Another problem is that my graph is super boring to look at. If I do a similar graph again I would put another variable on the Y-axis. Also I would pare down the number of cities to mainly the largest ones.
