Unfortunately my graphs are more complicated than the bar graphs in the original post, so by() isn't an alternative. But if I could control the size of the plot region, I'd be home. It looks like I need to settle for uneven plot region sizes or use a different graphing program, and neither option is appealing. Oh well, thanks for the reply! Laura

Seriously, let -graph- do the hard work for you. Go
back to the data and let the division into two graphs
be represented by a variable which you use in a -by()- option.

I have a similar problem to the one below:

I have two graphs, produced with -graph hbar- and want to combine
them underneath each other in one single graph.
What I want to have is [to have the y axes line up visually]
However, since the labels of the second graph are much shorter than
those of the first, I end up with a picture like this:
         Romania |###################                |
  United Kingdom |##                                 |
        EU |##                                       |
        CC |#######                                  |

Unfortunately I couldn't found a way to control the starting
of the numerical y-axis in the graph-region
I agree.  I have reported this problem to Statacorp.  The plotting
region is determined by the shape and size of labels in the surrounding
graph region.  Just fixing the format of labels does not correct this,
since the label mechanism determines the length according to the value
and then draws it left-justified.

I, too, had tried reformatting the labels, without success.
I tried setting the same aspect in the graphs, and same xsize and ysize,

but the plot regions still varied in size.
