st: Other Box plots
I'm still in the early stages of exploring Stata, but I haven't found a way
yet to get box plots to be generated the way I prefer. The built-in "box"
parameter in the graph command comes close, in that the whiskers encompass
1.5*IQR and further outliers are plotted individually - but you can't use a
by(groupvar) to get an array of related plots.
The hbox addition I found in the STB files allows the by(groupvar)
arrangement, but the whiskers encompass the entire range of data, rather
than a function of the IQR. This allows true outliers to dominate the graph
in an undesirable way, IMO
Is there a third way out there? Or am I going to have to learn how to
program ados to get boxplots the way I like them?
Thanks for any assistance
