Issue your statistics commands before
the graph and then use -graph- to display results. 

Example: 

. sysuse auto, clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

. corr turn length
(obs=74)

             |     turn   length
-------------+------------------
        turn |   1.0000
      length |   0.8643   1.0000


. scatter turn length, subtitle("r = `: di %5.3f r(rho)'")

-correlate- leaves r(rho) in memory. Here I add 
a small flourish to supply a format on the fly. 
-help macro- and -help extended_fcn- supply more
details. Note carefully the single left ` and right ' 
quotes.
