Daphna,


Here are few options.

1. Use horizontal bars.

2. Use the -label(alternate)- option.  In your case ...relabel(1 "No
Welfare.....") label(alternate) )

3. Use the -label(labsize(small))- option.  This can be used with the
alternate: -label(alternate labsize(small))-

4. Use the angle option:  -label(angle(45)-


Hope this helps,
Scott
