Not entirely clear, but this sounds more like a data management problem than one that can be solved by clever application of a -graph- command. Have you tried -round-?

Dear all:

I would like to get the following graph: variable "relative error" on the x-axis (range -2 to +1.5) and frequency (number of observations) of "relative error" on the y-axis.

I did not find anything in Stata to do this. My problem is how to get the frequency of the "relative error" observations. Stata should count the relative errors on a 1.51 basis; i.e. all errors from 1.505 to 1.515 should count for 1.51 etc. (I guess this problem can be solved by using -round-) and connect the dots to a graph.

I hope someone has an idea for this.

Thanks for your consideration.
