-ylabel(minmax)- is documented under [G] axis_label_options. Note that this is explicitly telling Stata to label only the minimum and maximum values (which may not be what you want to label); as previously noted, any -ylabel()- option will override the default behaviour of -sts graph- to have a y-axis labelled from 0 to 1. David -----Original Message----- From: Angus Campbell [mailto:a.campbell@unimelb.edu.au] Sent: 09 March 2005 03:11 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: RE: RE: yscale/range to plot Nita, You can also make -sts graph- automatically scale the y-axis to show just the range covering your Kaplan-Meir curve with the command: sts graph, ylabel(minmax) If you would then like to adjust the scale, you can add the suffix ...yscale(range(0.8 1)). But you still can't use -yscale- on its own; it must follow -ylabel(minmax)-. I couldn't find information on -ylabel(minmax)- in Stata help, but it has been previously mentioned in StataList - I had exactly the same problem last year.
