I am using boxplots (graph box x1 x2 x3..., Stata version 8.1, Win 98) to
plot several variables. Some plots seem not to show all the data.  For
example, for the following variable x:

. tab x

          x |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
          1 |        125       78.13       78.13
          2 |         20       12.50       90.63
          3 |         15        9.38      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |        160      100.00

the command "graph box x" shows only the median line at 1, with no whiskers
or outside values to indicate the data points at 2 or 3.

Can anyone suggest how I might get boxplots showing the full range of the
data?
