st: creating bar charts
I have three variables: sexratio, age and race. Age takes on seven
different values: 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30. Race takes on two
value: 1 (white) and 2 (black). Sex ratio is the national ratio of
on non-incarcerated men to women for each race and each age cohort
(where "age cohort" refers to five-year gaps in age. So, "5" is 1-5
year olds, "10" is 6-10, and so on).
I'm trying to create a simply bar graph, and I've got it working for
the most part, but I need to change a few things. Here's what I have
. graph bar (asis) SexRatio, over(race) over(age) bargap(.80) legend
( label(1 "White") label(2 "Black") ) ytitle(Sex Ratio) title(Racial
Dynamics in the U.S. Sex Ratio) note("Source: 2000 Census longform
I thought that by changing the legend labels, it would actually
report "white" and "black" instead of "1" and "2". But it doesn't.
I'm not sure what exactly I did, then, by changing the legend in this
way. There's no legend showing up, for instance, to the right of the
graph if it was creating a legend.
Secondly, I wanted to make an xtitle, showing the reader that age was
along the xaxis in five-year brackets, but when I included an -xtitle
(Age)- I got an error. Any ideas?
