This would be very inefficient to do with expressions, as expressions are evaluated every single frame.

You should look into data-driven graphics for this instead. Then you can sort the results in excel (or whatever the source of the data is) and include the color of the bar in the spreadsheet (source doc), and use a data-driven template to generate the image.

You would create the template yourself. Here's where to start: https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/data-driven-animations.html
