Visualization of statistical data can be very helpful, both for data analysis and for the presentation of the results of statistical analyses to a wider audience. To use graphs in a meaningful way, researchers must (1) pay attention to style rules for statistical graphs and (2) learn how to use Stata to create What-You-Get-Is-What-You-Want (WYGIWYW) graphs. The workshop discusses style rules for statistical graphs in general, and introduces the combination of resultssets and graph twoway to create arbitrary statistical graphs. Finally, the workshop discusses several ways to present the results of regression models and, particularly, the use of marginsplot.

Participants should have a basic understanding of Stata's graph command.
