Thanks, Nick. This is a very useful command to know. Now my question is: using qplot I want to generate a graph of y-variable which is rank ordered by x-variable (obviously different from Pen's parade). If I used the option - xvariable - in - qplot -, it produces an x-axis over the entire range of x variable but I am interested only in x-rank to sort my y-var. Is it possible to do this using qplot?

Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Shehzad Ali I want to create a twoway graph (like spike or dropline) where the x-axis is a rank variable (based on say income) and y-axis is the other variable of interest (say health_pay). A simple command - twoway spike health_pay income - spread the x-axis over the whole range of income but I am interested in income rank and not income itself. I know one way to do it is to generate income rank variable using - glcurve - and then plotting the rank_var against health_pay but I was wondering if there was a direct method. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
