My experiments match yours. It looks like a glitch in the -graph- code. You can do this something similar -- but not identical -- with -stripplot- from SSC. There's also scope for hybridising box plots and strip plots to get over some of the limitations of box plots. For example, sysuse auto egen loq = pctile(mpg), by(foreign) p(25) egen upq = pctile(mpg), by(foreign) p(75) stripplot mpg, ms(none) over(foreign) box(barw(0.2)) addplot(scatter foreign mpg if !inrange(mpg, loq, upq)) Although it's not in the code above, xla(, ang(45) labsize(small)) works with -stripplot- too. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk tess stafford As far as I understand, ylabel for "graph hbox" refers to the x-axis, which is the axis that I am trying to modify. The angle suboption does seem to work in over(var2,label(angle(45))), but this modifies the y-axis labels and I am trying to modify the x-axis labels.

When I change the code to "graph box" instead, "angle()" works fine. Similarly, "angle()" works fine for the other axis as in "over(var2,label(angle(45))). I don't understand why it won't work for the ylabel. > > Does anyone see anything wrong with my code? If not, is this a glitch in the language? Can we trick it into working? I know I can manually go in and alter the angle of the labels once Stata has generated the graph, but I will likely be making many of > these graphs over different groups in the data and potentially tweaking different aspects of them so it would be very time consuming to have to continually manually alter them. > > I'm using Stata 10/MP, by the way. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
