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
