Python Dash data not loading completely on Heroku

Python Dash data not loading completely on Heroku Pipelines:

Dash data loads correctly on localhost (code attached) with a value in 2017 up to 50 on the y-axis, but those values are not being displayed when deployed to Heroku.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @Hamza21 and welcome to the Dash Community!

I think your issue is similar to this thread.

I checked the datatypes of your columns and values of y axis are of type object instead of the numeric(float) type.
Try the solution I have discussed in the same thread.
