This looks like the same factor of 10 issue as before. Nick Winter's program has a factor default of 100, whereas your other graph is based on a factor of 1000, as said. So what you are asking of it is exactly equivalent to what you are asking of my code, and both differ from what you are asking using the code provided by Scott. Hence different requests produce different graphs. You're keeping a hold on your data. I surmise however that although in principle your variables, mapped to percents, could range from -100 to 100, in practice the range is much smaller than that. As we can't use your data, any further discussion would be more efficiently done by reproducing results with one of Stata's own datasets.
