One solution is to reshape your data so you have wave and time as variables.

For example,

clear
set obs 70
egen panel = seq(), from(1) to(2) block(35)
gen id = _n
forvalues i = 1/7 {
gen x`i' = invnorm(uniform()) + panel
}
reshape long x, i(id) j(time)
graph bar x, over(panel) over(time)

If you just wanted the x1-x7 labeled, you would need to have your data organized into two responses by panel, e.g., panel1 and panel2, and then issue

graph bar panel1 panel2, over(time)

Hello, everyone. I'm having trouble doing what ought
to be a simple bar graph. I have panel data that
includes some variables along the lines of...

X1 X2 ... X7

I am interested in their means by survey wave for each
of two waves. But, in terms of groupings...
I would like there two be 7 groups, each containing
two bars--one for wave I and one for wave II.

No matter what I do, it seems to want to create 2
groups of 7 bars each--the oppposite of what I want.

Thank you! Lloyd.
