Just wondering if anyone can send to me the second article mentioned by Maarten.

Speaking Stata: Spineplots and their kin. The Stata Journal 8(1): 105--121.

I have a small dataset (n=51 with many missing values).
There are about 17 variables, all categorical with 6 to 10
categories in each (although some categories can be sensibly
combined). I also have a list of 24 comparisons that the
researcher would like to look at.

It seems to me the only viable approach is to simply
display the data in a way that highlights interesting
features. True?

That sounds sensible
So I would like to know what commands I should be
investigating, whether built-in or user-written.
Nick Cox has writen useful atricles and programs on this in the Stata Journal (the 2004 article is available for free):

Nicholas J. Cox (2004), Speaking Stata: Graphing categorical and compositional data. The Stata Journal 4(2): 190--215.

Nicholas J. Cox (2008) Speaking Stata: Spineplots and their kin. The Stata Journal 8(1): 105--121.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
