I would like to plot two bar charts side by side using separate y-axis for each corresponding plot.

66 views (last 30 days)
I am plotting two bar charts on the same figure using the yyaxis right and yyaxis left function, so that they have separate y-axes.
However, I would like the bar charts to appear side by side, whereas currently they are overlapping (see image).
Can anyone suggest what to do in order to get the bar plots to appear side by side instead?
Many thanks for your help.

% I want one row of plots with 2 columns
tiledlayout(1,2)
%first plot
nexttile
y = [75 91 105 123.5 131 150 179 203 226 249 281.5];
bar(y)
%second plot
nexttile
y = [2 2 3; 2 5 6; 2 8 9; 2 11 12];
bar(y)

Sorry...I now notice your need for two different scales. Not enough coffee for me. Something like this was done in another post using plotyy: Bar Plot with 2 Y axes and same X- axis - (mathworks.com)
N=5; % number of bars
y1=rand(N,2); y2=100*rand(N,2); % dummy disparate-magnitude data sets
y1(:,2)=nan;y2(:,1)=nan; % NB: column 2, then column 1 are set NaN
x=[1:N].'; % use the serial index to plot against
hAx=plotyy(x,y1,x,y2,@bar,@bar); % plot, save axes handles
set(hAx(2),'xtick',[]) % turn off labels on RH x-axis; keep only one set
set(hAx(1),'xticklabel',[200:100:500 700]) % tick labels on first...
