Re: st: graphs, outliers, labels
Supposing the variable of interest is named "xvar", the variable of
identification - "case", and that you have seen just 4 outliers in a previous
screening using the Menu Graphics of Stata 8, then to identify outliers
(outsides in the box plot) you may type: graph box xvar, medtype(line)
The values appear in the y axis. If the yscale is too coarse you may add an
option like for instance ylabel(0(5)50) to get a more detailed scale covering
the values f the median, 25th and 75th percentiles.
