Lollipop plots can be very appropriate when it comes to compare 2 values for several entities. For each entity, one point is drawn for each variable, with a different color. Their difference is then highlighted using a segment. This type of visualisation is also called Cleveland dot plots. 

As usual, it is advised to order your individuals by mean, median, of difference to give even more insight to the plot. Here are 2 version, the first one use the default appearance of ggplot2, the second is a bit decluttered using some layout customisation (see the ggplot2 section for more info).
