Alexander, How about something like this: sysuse auto,clear qui { reg price disp length gen b_disp = _b[disp] gen b_length = _b[length] scalar t_disp = _b[disp] / _se[disp] scalar t_length = _b[length] / _se[length] if abs(t_disp) > 1.96 { local bar1 "1, bfcolor(red) blcolor(red)" } else { local bar1 "1, bfcolor(blue) blcolor(blue)" } if abs(t_length) > 1.96 { local bar2 "2, bfcolor(red) blcolor(red)" } else { local bar2 "2, bfcolor(blue) blcolor(blue)" } } graph bar (mean) b_* , bargap(30) /// bar(`bar1') bar(`bar2') ytitle("Parameter Estimate") /// blabel(bar, position(outside)) Hope this helps, Scott > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner- > statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of > Alexander.D.Rothenberg@frb.gov > Sent: Monday, August 23, 2004 1:08 PM > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: st: Nested If / then statement in a Bar Graph > > > > > Hello, > > I am making a series of bar graphs in STATA, each of which plots the > magnitudes of certain parameter estimates of different variables in a > regression against each other.
