Dear statalisters,

I have a very quick question regarding line graph in Stata ver.8.
Here is the structure of the data (a simple panel)

country		year		gdp
a		1970		1
a		1971		2
.		.		.
a		1999		18
b		1970		2
b		1971		5
.		.		.
b		1999		15
c		1970		5
c		1971		8
.		.		.
c		1999		10

Now, I would like to have the (connected) line graph for each country's gdp on year 1970-1999
that is, three lines for three country on the same graph in this case

I know that I can do this by reshaping the data into wide format, but I have lots of countries and variables which
makes reshaping very unattractive.
Can I do this with this long panel data?

Thanks in advance.

Yong
