# Specify order of bars in a bar chart? [duplicate]

I have a bar chart where I need to specify the order of the bars, and I can't seem to figure out how to do it. I've searched the documentation and Google, but I'm not coming up with anything helpful. Here's my code and the output:

BarChart[Counts[mathDataSet[All, "level"]],
PlotLabel -> Style["Math Placement", Bold, 20],
ChartLabels -> Automatic]


I need them to be in the order of 3 levels below, 2 levels below, 1 level below, college level 1, college level 2, college level 3. I feel like I'm missing something that should be so simple here.

• What is Counts[mathDataSet[All, "level"]] ... ? Is it not plotting in the order that you give it? – user6014 Oct 25 '18 at 20:19
