Dear Martin, Great help, thank you! Would it be possible on the connected line graph, in the same panel, to place the vertical lines (representing means and cis) one next to the other per interval so they are not overlapping, like in the example you showed me?

I see what you mean about question2 Regarding the bars I was thinking that the ci vertical line would be extended above and below the horizontal edge of the bar representing the mean. I think we see those kind of plots in excel, using the sd.

Mitchell http://www.stata-press.com/books/vgsg.html describes the same graph type but is apparently not bothered by the overlap. As for the bar chart, what do you want it to look like? How can you represent the CI on a bar chart?

I was wondering if you would comment on the following: - Would it be possible to have only one graph instead of two separate panels of the same graph? This way the two interventions would be next to each other within the same interval -How could I connect the means with a line? -Would it be possible to draw one bar chart with the same information? Thank you very much.
