st: gr bar for string variable |

dear listers, stata 8.2, i have data set-up like this: injurytype year typeII 2007 minimal 2003 typeII 2003 minimal 2003 typeIII 2005 typeIV 2006 and so on (the range of the injury type is minimal, typeI to typeIV while the year is 2003 - 2007). i am building a graph bar like the one in stata v. 8 [G] page 135 where in place of region 1 in the example, i would have the year and instead of 1 to 9 regional division, i would have the 5 types of injury (i.e. minimal, typeI to typeIV). following my earlier query (around new year's time), i did: gen x=1 gr bar (count) x, over(injurytype) over(year) which produces the one of the graph that i want except for one thing: the injury types, displayed on x-axis suffered from 'overprinting'. i know i can try: gr hbar (count) x, over(injurytype) over(year) ysize(10) which did solve the overprinting but i would be grateful if anyone can tell me: 1. how can i make, instead, each bar to be of a different color and displaying the color legend (e.g. red for minimal etc), so that i can suppress injurytype being shown on the x-axis (but still displaying the year) (someone need to tell me how to achieve this), and 2. how can i, instead of a -count-, produce a proportion or percentage of each type of injury over (year) i.e. on a graph bar, the y-axis would shows either proportion or percentage rather than count. thank you for advice/help. regards, bw _________________________________________________________________ Climb to the top of the charts!
