The jitter option in Stata graphs adds user controlled amounts of
spherical noise to plotted data, useful for categorical data plots to
prevent overprinting. But when only the X axis of a plot is
categorical, I don't necessarily want to add scatter in my Y axis. I
just want to add scatter in the X axis. It would be nice to have the
jitter option take two arguments, one for X and one for Y, say,
scatter y x, jitter(0 7)
to jitter the x axis only.
I know I can manually add some amount of random noise to a new
generated variable of X and plot that, but making the jitter option
do the above would be more desirable for me!
