First, know that "stratum" is the singular of "strata". 
This piece of Latin will come in very useful during 
your statistical career. 

Neil Shephard already gave a helpful answer. His 
reference to an article by myself in the Stata Journal

2004. Speaking Stata: Graphing categorical and compositional
data. The Stata Journal 2:190-123 (Abstract :
http://ideas.repec.org/a/tsj/stataj/v4y2004i2p190-213.html).

is however a little awry in terms of volume and page numbers, 
which should be 4(2): 190-215. 

An analogue of your question is easily seen with 

. sysuse auto, clear 
. tab foreign rep78, row 

Two commands that might be useful for you are -catplot-
and -tabplot-, both downloadable from SSC. For example, 

. tabplot foreign rep78 , percent(rep78) show(format(%4.1f))

is to my mind a little more interesting than more
conventional bar charts.

Lukar Thornton sent an HTML message, contrary 
to Statalist protocol. Here is the plain text: 

I have some data that I would like to fit onto a single graph (see below)
 
I want a vertical bar graph with the ffintake_ord categories along the 
x-axis with 3 vertical lines for each category to represent the percentages 
for each strata.

Is this possible and if so how do I do it?
