Hi
I have a dataset with censored observations. Many values of the observations are recorded as for example "<2", ">16", including "greater than or equal to" a value and "less than or equal to" a value. The variables with these observations are string-type variables in STATA. I would like to create a simple bar graph that shows the frequency of observations and have it sorted by numeric value. As in on the x-axis would have the values <2, 2, 4, >4. (in that order) and the y-axis would be the frequency of those values.
Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Colleen Murphy
