David,

I thought that -relabel- would be the answer to your question but I
am unable to assign blank labels.

. sysuse auto
. graph bar mpg, over(make)
. graph bar mpg, over(make, relabel(1 "1" 2 " " 3 " " 4 " " 5 " " 6
"6" 7 " " 8 " " 9 " " 10 " " 11 "11" 12 " " 13 " " 14 " " 15 " " 16
"16"))

Can someone else show us how to assign a blank label to a bar?
