Some variation on this may help: 

sysuse auto, clear
gen blank = .
collapse rep78 headroom gear_ratio 
gen one = 1
gen three = 3
gen four = 4
twoway bar rep78 one || bar headroom three || bar gear four, ///
base(0) yla(0/4) ///
xla(1 `" "Repair" "record" "' 3 "Headroom" 4 "Gear ratio") legend(off)

I am trying to draw a bar graph with a gap between sets of bars, as in
the example below. The gap is created with a variable that contains
only missing values.

sysuse auto, clear
gen blank = .
#delimit ;
graph bar rep78 blank headroom gear_ratio,
  yvaroptions(relabel(1 "Repair record" 2 " " 3 "Headroom" 4 "Gear

I have two questions about this graph.

1. How can I suppress the drawing of the number 2 under the gap? I
tried "" and " " as labels, with no effect.
2. How can I draw the words "Repair" and "record" on top of each other
instead of next to each other? I tried different combinations of
quotes without success.
