Dear Nick: Thank you very much for your help! I think since there is not an easy option, I will go for manipulating the graphs after having integrated them in the word-document.

Juni 2004 18:20 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: RE: blabels in stacked bar-graph I don't know a way to do this. A different kind of answer, which possibly you don't want, is to change to a different graph type, for it's the stacking of small and large bars that is causing the difficulty. For example, with the auto data, I can go tabplot foreign mpg, percent(foreign) bysort foreign rep78 : gen freq = _N bysort foreign : gen base = _N gen percent = round(100 * freq / base) gen foreign2 = 1.95 - foreign tabplot foreign rep78 , percent(foreign) scheme(lean1) plot(scatter foreign2 rep78, ms(none) mlabel(percent) mlabpos(0)) The 1.95 here is not general. A more general rule would be #categories - 0.05. (In -foreign-, 2 categories.) I guess your underlying problem has the structure of vgrup X v2 and the -vgrup?- are just a set of dummies. So your recipe could be something like this. -tabplot- is on SSC.
