I would like to indicate the mean on the histogram, 
with a tick on the horizontal axis.
Is there a way to do this?
 
====================================================
 
Two suggestions:
 
     sysuse auto , clear
     quietly summarize price
     local M = r(mean)
 
     histogram price , addplot(scatteri 0 `M', msymbol(+)) legend(off)
 
     histogram price , xlabel(0(5000)15000 `M') 
 
Hope this helps
Svend
