Friedrich,

Thank you for the suggestion. This graph is adequate, but I would like greater control over the spacing between bars as is typically done using the bargap or gap options. The reason would be to emphasize the comparison between college grads and non-college grads.

Is there a way to make the gaps between bars 2 and 3 and between bars 4 and 5 larger than the gaps between bars 1 and 2, bars 3 and 4, and bars 5 and 6?

David

Rather than pose the question outright, I will illustrate with a example comparing college graduates with non-college graduates: . sysuse nlsw88, clear . graph hbar (mean) hours wage tenure, over(collgrad) showyvars give you a graph with the bars in the order, from top to bottom, of: 1. mean hours for non-college grads 2. mean wage for non-college grads 3. mean tenure for non-college grads 4. mean hours for college grads 5. mean wage for college grads 6. mean tenure for college grads But what I actually want is 1. mean hours for non-college grads 2. mean hours for college grads 3. mean wage for non-college grads 4. mean wage for college grads 5. mean tenure for non-college grads 6. mean tenure for college grads Is there a option, user-written program, or set of commands that would produce this graph?
