Nishant: If you are using Stata 9, than stphtest is out of date and you can better use estat phtest, but that does not answer your question. You can pile up almost any options you can use after twoway after estat phtest, plot(varname) (or stphtest, plot(varname)). In your case you want to change the title on the yaxis, so you can add ytitle("whatever"). This is illustrated in the example below. As I understand it, the plot option just shows a scatter plot of scaled Schoenfeld residuals against time with a lowess smooth fitted through it. If I do that by hand my lowess smooth is a lot smoother than the result from estat phtest, but the footnote indicates that the same bandwidth is used. Does anybody have any ideas?
