Interactive charts are a great strategy for engaging your audience to investigate the questions they are interested in. Here, Pat will use the plotly R package to take a slope chart generated with ggplot2 to make an interactive figure. The data depict the percentage of people in 15 countries who would be willing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as of August and October of 2020.

In this episode, Pat uses plotly, ggplot2, and dplyr to make an interactive slope plot.
