Suzy,

I assume you have data like this:

     age    smoker
      20         0
      21         0
      23         0
      22         1
      24         1
      20         0
      21         1
      22         0
      23         1
      24         1

You can get your graph by collapsing the data over age.

. collapse smoker, by(age)
. replace smoker = 100*smoker
. scatter smoker age
