I agree that a horizontal bar graph would best illustrate ranking. This format allows the viewer to see the largest bar (with the most observations) at the top, and and the smallest bar (with the fewest observations) at the bottom. In the Eastern Zone, Curative Care Visits would be the largest bar (n=987), whereas Inpatient Medical (n=2) and Inpatient Obstetrics (n=2) would be at the bottom. In the Northern Zone, Curative Care Visits would be the top bar (n=586) and Speech Therapy would be the bottom bar (n=1). Though the top bar is the same across both zones, the rankings overall certainly differ. Looking more granularly, the rankings for the Eastern Zone from largest to smallest would be: Curative Care Visit, Physical Therapy, Well Visit, Emergency Room, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Inpatient Nursery/NICU, and Inpatient Medical and Inpatient Obstetrics. In the Northern Zone, the rankings from largest to smallest would be: Curative Care Visit, Physical Therapy, Well Visit, Emergency Room, Inpatient Medical, Inpatient Nursery/NICU and Inpatient Obstetrics, Inpatient Surgery and Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy.
