A common requirement for publication is to show sample sizes on graphs.  Here is an approach that might be adaptable to various types of graphs.  Groupvar in the following is a string contained the group labels.

egen samplen = count(plotvar), by(groupvar)
gen labwithn = groupvar + " (" + string(samplen) + ")"
graph hbox plotvar, over(labwithn)t2("(sample size in brackets)")

With the added ability to exclude small samples, sort on sample size etc:
graph hbox plotvar if(samplen>10), over(labwithn)
