dear all, stata 8.2, my data set-up look something like this: subject laser1 laser2 1 1 2 2 2 1 3 3 3 4 2 4 5 3 1 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 316 4 1 there were 316 subjects. laser1 has categories which take the values of 1 to 5 but returns from the subjects showed only categories 1 to 4 i.e. none of the subejct reported 5, likewise with laser2. i want to create a graph ala [G] page 134 of Stata 8 [G]raphic manual, where the y-axis would show the total count of the subjects for each category while x-axis would show categories 1 to 5, with the chart itself consisting of two bars of different colors for each laser1 and laser2. i tried various gr bar commands but just couldn't produce the kind of graphs that i want. using catplot e.g.: catplot bar laser1 laser2, asyvars came close but somehow it is showing 3 bars in some categories when it should only be showing two bars i.e. one for each laser1 and laser2 respectively. the other thing is i also want to show on the graph is category 5 (i.e. value of 5) on the x-axis albeit it'll be empty i.e. 0, but where in using the above command, only 1 to 4 in the x-axis was displayed. i would appreciate any advice/help either using the gr bar route or the catplot route or both to achieve what i wanted to show. thank you, bw _________________________________________________________________ Want to do more with Windows Live?
