One way to get thinner(ish) bars would be to change to gaps. Something like graph hbar (mean) b_* , outergap(100) bargap(250) /// > That leads to the second question.

I suppose, you could pick up the list of variables from -regress- and cycle through them in a more automated manner or pick up the elements you need from e(b) and e(V). > Third, what if Alex wanted to use beta-weights as opposed to b-scores? > Unfortunately, -ereturn list- doesn't leave these behind even if > you enter > > . reg price disp length, beta > > but, again, maybe there's a workaround here, too. Kit Baum's -betacoef- returns the beta coefficients in matrix. One way would be: sysuse auto,clear qui { reg price disp length betacoef matrix A = r(beta) gen b_disp = A[1,1] gen b_length = A[1,2] 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 hbar (mean) b_* , outergap(100) bargap(250) /// bar(`bar1') bar(`bar2') ytitle("Beta Coefficients") /// blabel(bar, position(outside)) Scott * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
