Maartens answer refers to the -addplot- option, which is unavailable for
-graph hbar-, as far as I know. You might also give -graph twoway bar- a try.
Consider the command
. sysuse auto
. graph hbar (mean) trunk, over(rep78, sort((mean) trunk)) yline(10)
This can be translated to -graph twoway bar- as follows:
. collapse (mean) trunk if rep78<., by(rep78)
. egen axis = axis(trunk), reverse label(rep78) // <- Download -egenmore-
. graph twoway
bar trunk axis, horizontal barwidth(.5)
xscale(range(0 16)) xlabel(0(5)15)
You can than overlay any -twoway- plot you like. In your case overlaying a
simple line graph is the most natural choice:
. gen line = 10
. graph twoway
|| bar trunk axis, horizontal barwidth(.5)
|| line axis line, sort
|| , xscale(range(0 16)) xlabel(0(5)15)
Note that the order of the overlays define what is graphed on top of each
other.
Hope this helps
