Hello All

Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -eclplot- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this.

The -eclplot- package is described as below on my website. The new version has a sensible default for the -legend()- suboption of the -by()- option, which now defaults to -legend(on)- if the -supby()- option is specified and to -legend(off)- if the -supby()- option is unspecified. Therefore, in default, -eclplot- now draws a legend if and only if the user asks for multiple superimposed confidence interval plots, even if the user also asks for multiple side-by-side confidence interval plots using the -by()- option. This default adds to and/or overrides any default set by the graphics scheme currently in force, and in turn can be added to and/or overridden by options and/or suboptions set by the user.

The on-line help now contains a link to my downloadable presentation on -eclplot-, given at the 11th UK Stata User Meeting earlier this year.

Best wishes


package eclplot from

eclplot: Horizontal and vertical confidence interval plots

eclplot creates a plot of estimates with lower and upper confidence limits
on one axis against another numeric variable on the other axis. The estimates
and lower and upper confidence limits are stored in three variables, in a
data set with one observation per confidence interval to be plotted. Data
sets with such variables may be created manually (using a spreadsheet),
or using the parmest package, or using statsby or postfile in official Stata.
The user has a choice of plotting the confidence intervals horizontally or
vertically, a choice of plot styles for the estimates, and a choice of range
plot styles for the confidence intervals. It is also possible to overlay
the confidence interval plot with other plots using the plot() option,
and to overlay multiple superimposed confidence interval plots using the
supby() option. eclplot may be used either as a command or through a dialog.
