Dear all
I am PhD student and request your assistance on this issues. Suppose I have two columns variable "lnexp" and "region" where lnexp is log of expenditure (continuous) and region is a categorivsl variable; 1=Eastern region, 2=Southern region and 3= Northern region. If I want to draw kernel graphs of "lnexp" for these regions on one chart, what should I do on Stata 10? I need a command.
Your in luck Stata has a command. Well it actually has many, but the one you probably want is...

histogram lnexp, by(region)

..should do the trick. See -man histogram- (for the main bulk of drawing histrograms) and -man twoway_options- (for details of how the ,by() option works). There are of course lots of other options for labelling your graphs and so forth, all of which are documented in the online help (and linked from -man histogram- page).
