Re: st: How to print in black an interval in an histogram |

Dear Herve, here is an example which might help you: sysuse auto gen price1=price if rep78==1 gen price2=price if rep78==2 gen price345=price if inlist(rep78,3,4,5) graph bar price1 price2 price345, over(rep78) bar(1,color(blue)) bar(2,color(red)) nofill Note 3 things: 1) price is separated into three vars, so that styles can be controlled individually 2) using graph bar instead of histogram, since option -bar- does not apply to histogram for some reason. 3) using -nofill-option to align the bars properly I think you can first compute the frequencies, put them in a small dataset, then plot it similarly to this example. Hope this helps.
