nick (cox), to be sure 'c'est la vie' didn't mean giving up. intuitively i thought so too that the problem can't be that difficult having used your catplot in the past. at the moment though i am not making any headway. i have a feeling that i need to manipulate the data into something else first before applying the appropriate [G]raph command to produce the graph that i wanted (like so below) but what that something else first is i am stumped (or that the data set-up need to re-organized in a different): ^ no. of + returns 80+ xx + xx xx cc xx cc 60+ xx cc xx cc xx cc + xx cc xx xx cc xx cc + xx cc xx cc xx cc xx cc + xx cc xx cc xx cc xx cc + xx cc xx cc xx cc xx cc +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++> 1 2 3 4 5 xx = laser1 cc = laser2 xx and cc are my 'cartoon-ish' substitute for a bar histogram for laser 1 and 2 respectively. there is also a category of responds i.e. equal to 5 which none of the subjects returns in evaluating laser1 or laser2 hence will be zero on the histogram as seen above. i am not sure how much of the above illustration describes what i wanted better than words can but i hope it does. if further description in words is required please do let me know. as requested, the contigency table is as follows: .tab laser1 laser2 laser2 laser1 1 2 3 4 Total 1 70 65 22 8 165 2 64 29 13 0 106 3 20 8 2 0 30 4 11 3 1 0 15 Total 165 105 38 8 316 once again thank you for your (or anyone else's) input. regards, bw > Date: Tue, 30 Sep 2008 10:20:54 -0500 > From: n.j.cox@stata.com > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: Re: st: graph bar and/or catplot > > The original question talked about a bar graph from two categorical > variables. > > The problem can't be too difficult!
