Yes. You do need to study the help carefully. The y axis is the response axis, here horizontal. Your problematic labels are on the other axis, called categorical by Stata. Here is an analogue of your problem with the auto data: sysuse auto, clear graph dot (asis) mpg in 1/50, over(make, label(labsize(*0.45))) Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Brent Fulton 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? 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 Friedrich Huebler See -help graph dot-.
