For similar problems in future you may want to check out -separate-. Thus the lines gen outcome1 = `outcome' if `uvar'==1 global label1 : label (`uvar') 1 gen outcome0 = `outcome' if `uvar'==0 global label0 : label (`uvar') 0 are likely to be equivalent to separate `outcome', by(`uvar') veryshortlabel In a program what you have is more efficient, but interactively -separate- is less work. The topic of percent summaries, including graphics, was discussed recently on the list and an FAQ is now visible at http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/percentvars.html Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Lars E.
