.

You have an unmatched quote in note().

assuming the variable "status" exists.

Re: st: RE: twoway scatter returns "unmatched quote"






I added "modify"

label define status 0 "rural", modify

is what I did (sorry). But

ta status

returns

0

1 urban

Rike,

What do you mean by "it doesn't add a label for 0"? Stata can assign
labels to zeros. Did you forget the -modify- option?

. d foreign

Hi,

I think the problem lies in the label. The variable "status"" takes 0
for rural and 1 for urban, but I'm not able to assign a label to 0
(and "urban" is already assigned to 1). I ran

la def status 0 "rural"

it doesn't add a label for 0 which is odd...

No quotes are included in what you report here as typed.

So, check out in turn

1. Any unmatched quotes in the variable label of -status-.

2. Any unmatched quotes in the value labels of -status- (if any).

3. Any unmatched quotes in the values of -status- (if it is a string
variable).

4. Repeat 1 for your other variables.

My guess is #1.

Then remove the unmatched quote _or_ insert a matching quote and
reissue
the -graph- command.

I tried it without the space (I mistakenly put it back there when I
copied the code for the list) but I get the same error. Any other
ideas?

Kieran McCaul

You have a space in the -by- option.
-by (status)- should be -by(status)-

Rike

I'm running the following code:

twoway scatter ratio month, by(status) c(l) xlabel(1(1)12)

twoway scatter ratio1 ratio2 ratio3 ratio4 month, by (status)
connect(l l l l) xlabel(1(1)12)

where status is a dummy. Stata returns an r(198) error, and it
happened when I added the by-option. I would also like to use
by(status, total) later on. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
