This may be too obvious, but what about a scatter plot? 

Also, note the special purpose -pairplot- from SSC aimed specifically at
pairwise comparison and the discussion, accessible to all, within

-ttest- sounds more like you are trying to compare means than totals?
Have
you thought about the -total- command proper?

Solorzano Mosquera, Jenniffer

How it is possible to compare between two variables for the same
individual? I'm trying to do a ttest to find differences between
variables constructed from two different data bases for the same unit.
For example, what is the difference between Total of workers for firms
group A based on data base number1 and Total of workers for firms group
A constructed with data base number 2.? I've already did a merge and I
have TotWorkers1 TotWorkers2 variables for the same firms.
