Sibel,

I guess you should provide more information. It is hard to make any useful
suggestion otherwise. E.g.

- What command are you using for drawing your Lorenz curve? (There exist no
official command and more than one user-written commands for doing that.)

- How does your education variable look like? (categorical? in years? stg
else?)

- how are "no-schooling" people coded? (missing? zero?)

- what's the fraction of people with no schooling

- how does your resulting graph look like?

- ...
