Admittedly, my earlier solution did not give you the dot you were looking for, but a reference line. If you have Stata 10, fire up the graph editor afterwards, use the -add marker- tool and place the marker onto the reference line. Then highlight the reference line and kill it... If -gr box- were part of the -twoway- family of graphs, one could imagine overlaying it with a -scatteri- to get the mean onto the graph more reliably than this...

Hello,

Does anyone know how to put mean (preferably marked as dot) within the
box using -gr box-?

Thanks,
Aca
