Re: st: generating one twoway graph using by |

Nick Cox suggested three good, more-or-less pre-packaged solutions.

Another way to go, which generalizes to other cases where one needs to generate multiple graph statements, might be something like this:

levels PID , local(levs)

foreach val of local levs {

local cmd `cmd' (line ivalue idate if PID==`val')

}

graph twoway `cmd' , legend(off)

This builds up your (massive) list of graph commands in a loop, then executes them all at the end.

I'm not sure that plotting all 200 in one graph will generate anything comprehensible, but it can be done . . .

--------------------------------------------------------Hello all, I am trying to make a line plot of many individuals values over time in one graph. I am hoping that there is someway to shortcut around the syntax of -twoway- using -by- such that I do not need to specify all individuals (I have nearly 200). I started with twoway (line ivalue idate, by(PID)) but that gave 200 individual graphs. so did twoway (line ivalue idate), by(PID) but that gave the same thing. I am hoping to avoid needing to write twoway (line ivalue idate if PID==1) (line ivalue idate if PID==2) ...... Should I stop hopeing, and start writing?
