Subject   st: interpreting output of kdensity command

Greetings,

 To build kernel density graphs in Stata, I created a Do-file for purpose of 
generating a variable within which density measures are taken. This variable 
contained 100 points. From my understanding, the distance between each point 
is the bandwidth. I ran this Do-file prior to using the kdensity command.
 In the resulting kernel density graphs, there are points on the y-axis which 
are greater than 1. How should the y-axis of the resulting kernel density 
graphs be interpreted? Is it the frequency of the distribution? 
Thank you


Kimberley
