On easy way is to you the ylabel option with the format suboption.  For example:

sysuse auto, clear
graph twoway (scatter trunk price), ylabel(, format(%5.1f))

Changes the labeled y format to display one decimal place.

You could also use the format command (help format) to change the
format for the variable before plotting it.


Best,
Alan

My current graph has values of 1.6, 1.8, 2, 2.2, but I would like to have the "2" be "2.0".  Below is my code (I tried to input the desired values into the ylabel option, but it still just printed "2" instead of "2.0"):
