Hello List, I'm new to stata and have, I hope, a simple question.
I've checked the archives, web, and stata help pages without
finding the answer. This may also help, I do most of my graphics
in R; so naturally, i'm looking to see if there is an analog to my
R technique with stata.
Here is the problem. I want to plot a simple bivariate proportions
table. The rub is that the proportions that I wish to plot come
from a svy command. Here is an example of the input>output I wish
to plot (year on x, age first intercourse (proportion by year) on
y).
. svy: tab q58 year if grade==1,per col
(running tabulate on estimation sample)
Number of strata = 56 Number of obs =
5271
Number of PSUs = 144 Population size =
428239.69
Design df =
88

Total  100 100 100 100 100 100

Key: column percentages
Pearson:
Uncorrected chi2(28) = 110.1731
Designbased F(., .) = . P = .
So, what I would like to do is (this would be how I would do it in
R):
1. output the table with some option or estimation command into a
matrix
2. use the matrix to simply plot each row.
OR, to try any suggestions from the statalist community.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
