Thanks, Friedrich, I didn't see the -over- option originally. This worked, but the state abbreviation labels on the y-axis are too large. I've tried ylabel and mlabel but both give errors (see below). Do you have any recommendations here? thanks, Brent graph dot men women children, over(state) ylabel(labsize(vsmall)) error: invalid label specifier, : labsize(vsmall): graph dot men women children, over(state) mlabel(labsize(vsmall)) error: option mlabel() not allowed -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Friedrich Huebler Sent: Monday, November 17, 2008 8:19 AM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: dot plot of each point Brent, See -help graph dot-.
