Hi everyone,

with cancer registry data I want to draw the sex-specific distribution of
cancer localisations on a population-pyramid-like diagram.

The difference to the population pyramid is that I have localisations
instead of age groups on the vertical axis, which differ by sex. So I have
different localisations to the left (women) and to the right (men). The
localisations are sorted by frequency and to obtain a homogeneous graph I
use the same number of bars/localisations on both sides.

I tried different graphing options and ended up using two "gr hbar" graphs
combined so far. 

Whats missing is that I need to label the bars (abs. or rel. frequency) and
get negative values on the left side. Is there a way to obtain all positive
bar labels (just like the options for all positive axis labels)? 


Best wishes
