Thanks Scott for your suggestion. When I tried it, the
response I got was 'parentheses do not balance
invalid syntax'.
When I tried 
. line y year
It produces a different type of graph; something that
resembles a histogram. 
I can get the graph of the mean of the variable, but
not without the mean. Even eliminating the word
'mean'from the command, produces a graph with the mean
of the variable. 
Thanks
