Yes, I think so. What format is your data in now? On Mar 25, 2009, at 8:30 AM, Kate McAllister wrote:

Does this mean I have to rearrange my data set? At the moment column 1contains my 'timeperiod' variable and then the other columns are myothervariables, with a total of three lines in my table. Is the answer tohavethe timeperiods as different columns and the variables as differentrows?If so, is there a nice simple way of doing this (I have quite a few variables) Sorry if this seems a stupid question - I am a Stata novice! Many thanks. What you wanted is to have your times (ordered correctly) over your variables, not your variables grouped by time, which is what you got. The help file for graph bar talks about what you can expect under different requests. You have to scroll way down to ``remarks'', specifically where it gives pictures of year and division.

I want to create a bar graph displaying several variables over 3 different time periods. If I type: graph hbar (sum) variable1 variable2 variable3 variable4, over(timeperiod) then I get a graph that displays all the variable values for timeperiod1 clustered together, then all the variable values for timeperiod2, and then for timeperiod3. What I actually want is a graph the displays the variable1 values over the three time periods, THEN the variable2 values over the three time periods, then the variable3 values... and so on, all on one graph. What am I doing wrong?
