Dear All

When ever you plot a bar graph stata uses the variable label of the
"over( variable)" to label the horizontal axis. My problem is the
labels overlap on the horizontal axis and looks a bit messy. How can
this be corrected?

My code and graph is attached. Thank you in advance.

#d;
graph bar (count) p c, over(response) 
        bargap(-20) bar(1,bcolor(red)) bar(2,bcolor(green)) bar(3,bcolor(gold))
	 blabel(bar, format(%4.0f) position(outside))
	 legend(label(1 "Patients") label(2 "Controls") )
         ytitle("Frequency") yla(,angle(0));
#d;

Raphael
