Using the Graphics\Histogram menu, you can add a title to the entire graph
(instead of the individual graphs) in the "By" tab of the Histogram
Dialogue. First, click on the Graphics menu and select Histogram. Then
select the "By" tab and look for the "Title/ Subtitle/ Caption/ Note"
section of the dialogue box. The title that you enter in the "Title:"
box will show up as the overall title of your histogram.
You can also get rid of the note in the bottom left-hand corner of the
graph in the same manner. Instead of "Title", select "Note" from the
selection box and place "" in the "Note:" field. This will replace the
defaul note with an empty string. Your resulting command will look
something like the following:
. histogram x, by(y , title(My Overall Title) note(""))
