Phil is right. The option he suggests (2) seems to place the legend in the
graph area, whereas (1) and (3) place it in the margin on the right. Can
someone explain why this is the case?

line  ged hs yob, legend(pos(3) col(1) lab(1  "Males") lab(2   "Females"))

line ged hs yob,  legend(pos(3))   legend(col(1))   legend(lab (1 "Males"))  legend(lab(2   "Females")) legend(ring(0))

line ged hs yob, legend(pos(3)) legend(col(1) lab(1  "Males") lab(2 "Females"))
