st: Escaping dollar sign in graphs
This problem came up on the list a few weeks but I would like to ask Stata
whether something can be done about this issue. Specifically, the problem is
that, given a have variable whose label contains a dollar sign say
. la var xrus "\$US per \$CA"
and trying to plot it as either
. twoway line xrus year
. twoway line xrus year, ytitle("\$US per \$CA")
causes the currency units to vanish from the y-axis title, leaving only "
per " behind.
This is a bug isn't it? Or a very unfortunate mis-feature IMO. It *should*
be possible to print basic ASCII characters set in graphs. Can something be
done about this, this is particularly troublesome for economists.
