Dear all,

I would like to ask you whether I can make a graph of a means of one
variable ( y axis) per the bins of another varible ( x axis).
One possibility would be to use Nick Cox's -ciplot- program (downloadable from SSC), which plots means with confidence intervals.

Another possibility would be to generate a dataset (or resultsset) with one observation per value of the X-axis variable and data on means of the Y-variable (with or without confidence limits). This can be done using -statsby-, or possibly by using -xcollapse- (downloadable from SSC). This resultsset can then be loaded into memory and plotted using Stata graphics. To find more about more about Stata resultssets, type

findit resultsset


findit enduser

in web-aware Stata, and you will find some downloadable .pdf files on the subject.

I hope this helps.
