Example of orthodox box plot follows. N.B. that this requires prior installation of -egenmore- from SSC. sysuse auto, clear egen adju = adju(mpg), by(foreign) egen adjl = adjl(mpg), by(foreign) egen loq = pctile(mpg), by(foreign) p(25) egen upq = pctile(mpg), by(foreign) p(75) stripplot mpg, /// over(foreign) ms(none) box(bfcolor(ltblue)) yla(, noticks) pstyle(p1) /// addplot(rcap adjl adjl foreign, horizontal pstyle(p1) /// || rcap adju adju foreign, horizontal pstyle(p1) /// || rspike upq adju foreign, horizontal pstyle(p1) /// || rspike loq adjl foreign, horizontal pstyle(p1) /// || scatter foreign mpg if !inrange(mpg, adjl, adju), mcolor(navy) /// || scatter foreign mean, ms(D) mcolor(navy) msize(*2)) Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Nick Cox One way to do this through marker symbols, as requested, is through -stripplot- from SSC. sysuse auto, clear egen mean = mean(mpg), by(foreign) stripplot mpg, over(foreign) box stack centre height(0.2) ms(sh) addplot(scatter foreign mean, ms(Dh) msize(*3)) With more work, you can come arbitrarily close to more conventional forms of the box plot. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Weiss 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...
