Dear Maarten, Thank you very much. I have not used centile command until now. I will definitely try it out. Thanks. Best regards, Swati Misra. ----- Original Message ---- From: Maarten buis <maartenbuis@yahoo.co.uk> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Sent: Thursday, May 22, 2008 12:50:17 AM Subject: Re: st: Graphics question --- Swati Tyagi <styagi15@yahoo.com> wrote: > I have a dataset of 1000 bootstrapped replicates and have > constructed a 2 way scatterplot with "cost" variable on y-axis and > "effect" data on x-axis and wish to label the 25th and 975th readings > of the x-axis variable with values on the scatterplot. You can get these values with the -centile- command, see -help centile-, which will also store these values in r(c_1), r(c_2), etc, depending on how many centiles you asked for. You can then use these, for instance in the -xline()- option, which I think makes more sense than adding them as data points, because these values only contain information on x, while an data point also implies information on the y-value. *----------------- begin example ----------------- sysuse auto, clear centile trunk, c(2.5 97.5) scatter weight trunk, xline(`r(c_1)' `r(c_2)') *----------------- end example ------------------- (For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see http://home.fsw.vu.nl/m.buis/stata/exampleFAQ.html ) Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
