English usage. Barplot of the number of people/persons in/by/on/per/for


#1

Hello.

What’s the proper way to say in English I want to explain the results of a barplot (with / of / from) the… ?

… number of ( people / persons ) ( **by / per / as a function of / according to ** ) the number of heart attacks suffered.

or also

… number of occurrences ( by / for each / per ) category or year.

What options would you choose?

I know this is not an English grammar forum but I have a question related with plots and statistics and maybe you can help on the Offtopic section.
When I ask this kind of things at language web sites they say they don’t understand what I mean or they just don’t reply. For example I once asked at english.stackexchange.com what is the right option:

  • every/all person’s/people’s time.
  • the time of/from each person.
    but nobody answered.

Could you show the plot you’re talking about?

For example this one:

I have two baplots

  1. x-axis = different categories, y-axis = number of occurrences.
  2. x-axis = total number of occurrences, y-axis = number of people that suffered them.

And persons or people?

#7

as axis labels “number of people” x “number of heart attacks”
or “persons” x “heart attacks per person”

if you like


#8

Then isn’t it right “Number of occurrences by event type”?


#9

Then I should use people for the plural and for the singular is better to say person and each person, isn’t it?


#10

yes

“Number of occurrences by type of event”
“Occurences per Event Type”
