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
