It seems inevitable that whenever I email this list, regardless of the
length of time I had spent on the problem and the number of times I've
gone through Statalist archives and Stata documentation, I immediately
solve it.

For those interested, text may be added to eclplot by using the added
text option (see help added_text_options) in "additional estimates
options" of eclplot.
Ben can also use the -plot()- option of -eclplot-, using marker labels. For instance, if the categories are in the variable -category- and the counts are in the variable -catcount-, then Ben might type:

eclplot estimate min95 max95 category, eplottype(bar) ///
plot(scatter max95 category, msymbol(none) mlabel(catcount) mlabpos(12))

and this would superimpose a scatter plot with labels and no symbols to insert the category counts just above the upper confidence limits.
