You use it the way you expect to be most fruitful.I'm not minded to go upstream and find out what the example isabout, orlearn enough about the subject-matter to make a guess at what shouldbemost helpful. But the default -anovaplot- has no inbuilt intelligence. It's likely that some permutation of the factors improves on the default plot, for example anovaplot s a b A simple but important issue is that whenever identifiers are quite arbitrary, putting them on one axis may not yield a clear picture. It may be worth re-labelling identifiers to make structure clearer. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk David Airey I always use it for between subjects ANOVAs. Perfect for that. The key thing in my response is that _I_ have not been satisfied with my use in within subject designs or mixed models. Maybe I was not using it correctly. Let's use an example from UCLA ATS, so that I can get it as correctly intended. From http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/faq/xtmixed.htm just focusing on the ANOVA aspects of the page, let's do: use http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/examples/kirk/spf2-4, clear anova y a / s|a b a*b /, repeated(b) How do you use -anovaplot- here? -Dave On Apr 26, 2009, at 11:26 AM, Nick Cox wrote:2.1.1 is the latest publicly available version.-anovaplot- plots observed and fitted values after -anova- in termsofpredictor levels. It's a bit surprising to hear that you never found that useful. What do you do instead? A while back I went carefully through various classic texts on ANOVA from the 1950s. As I recall none of them included any plots based on data. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk David Airey I never found -anovaplot- useful for anything but between subject designs. I'd be curious to see the repeated measures plots using - anovaplot-. Is the version on SSC not the latest?

The paper is accessible to all via http://www.stata-journal.com/sjpdf.html?articlenum=gr0009 -anovaplot- is described on p.458. I add this comment, which is relevant to Diego's question: "It is curious that analysis-of-variance people typically draw interaction plots but suppress the data, whereas regression people prefer to draw scatterplots showing both observed and fitted values. Admittedly, a complicated set of crossing lines showing interactions may seem to leave little scope for showing data effectively, while a relatively simple regression leaves plenty of scope, but the difference is nevertheless intriguing."I still treasure a comment made by a senior Stata user, who mightnotwant to be named for this, to the effect that showing the data onthegraph typically confuses the issue. Nevertheless I'll think about adding a -nodata- option, possibly with a sting in the tail. (For example, it might -drop- all your data, or some such.) Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Thomas Steichen =============== Although you have suppressed printing a symbol for the data points via -scatter(msym(none))-, Stata still allows room for that invisible data in its y-axis range. Therefore you cannot reduce the range given the way the code is written. Editing the code to allow what you want is pretty straightforward. Change line: numlist "2/`= 1 + `: word count `fits'''" To: numlist "1/`= 1 + `: word count `fits'''" And line: twoway scatter `y' `x1' if e(sample), `scatter' /// To: twoway `scatter' /// Then edit line: program anovaplot, sort To: program anovaplot0, sort Save it with new name anovaplot0.ado and invoke it with command -anovaplot0- Nick Cox's original will keep working and you'll have this one for your purpose. Of course, you could get fancy and add a -nodata- option that allows both forms in a single program. Diego Bellavia ============== I am trying to plot an ANOVA for repeated measures model using the amazing anovaplot command. Everything works fine except the yscale range. I need to reduce the range and increase the scale to make differences clear. So I tried: anovaplot level groups, scatter(msym(none)) yscale (range(-12 -24)) ylabel(-12 (2) -24) The problem is that I actually reduced the numbered range and the labelling but now almost half of the graph is empty. Is there any way to change the range so that I can take advantage of all the graph extension ?* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
