And then plot with the invisible option. Here is some details: -centile ..., centile(25 50 75)- leaves behind locals (se -return list-) that can be used. I think stata defines the points to be plotted as single points as those larger than median + 1.5 * IQR (and similar at small values) via centile you can get hold of these two values. Call them `u' and `l' If your vaiable of intresset is X1 you could do: centile X1, centile(25 50 75) local u = `r(c_2)' + 1.5*( `r(c_3)'-`r(c_1)' ) local l = `r(c_2)' - 1.5*( `r(c_3)'-`r(c_1)' ) gen X2=X1 replace X2= `u' + 0.1 if X2> `u' replace X2= `l' - 0.1 if X2< `l' gr X2, box symbol(i) Best Lars PS On a PC you might have to change my ' to a more vertical looking character. ............................................ : Lars Korsholm Ph.D., : : Department of Statistics and Demography : : University of Southern Denmark : : Sdr.
