The question says "variable labels". I presume
this means "value labels".
The FAQ advises
"If you can, reproduce the error with one of Stata's
provided datasets or a simple concocted dataset that
you include in your posting."
In this spirit, and omitting a lot of messing
around on my part, here is one work-around that
gets something like this:
sysuse auto, clear
label def rep78 1 poor 2 fair 3 middling 4 good 5 excellent
label val rep78 rep78
gen where = 1.3
decode rep78, gen(REP78)
histogram rep78, discrete addl percent gap(10) xla(none) ///
legend(off) bcolor(none) ysc(r(0 45)) ///
addplot(scatter where rep78, ms(none) mla(REP78) mlabpos(0) mlabsize(*1.3))
In Stata 8, not 9, you would need -plot()-, not -addplot()-.
That is a stab at #1. A similar trick for #2 would probably depend
on using -twoway bar- rather than -graph bar-.
In general, Stata seems wedded the idea that axis labels belong on
the outside. It may be indoctrination, but I tend to agree. Still,
that's irrelevant, as with -twoway- you can put text where you want.
