st: RE: are box plots limited to one y variable?
The answer to the question above is No.
Getting quite you want is a different matter.
I guess you may need some ad hoc scaling upstream
of graphing to get it. e.g. find constants a and
b such that
a + b log y
covers the same range as y.
graph7 y y , xlog oneway twoway box by(category)
is not what you want, but quite interesting.
