HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Philip Jones Gesendet: Donnerstag, 12. November 2009 15:17 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: How to plot frequencies of Likert scale over two groups (data shaping question) After substantial frustration at my inability to simply perform this task in Stata, I am asking this group for help! I know that it will be easy to answer, but I am unable to come up with the correct way of shaping my data for the following need of graphing. I have a Likert scale (1 to 5) that two groups of people answered. I would like to create a bar graph with the x axis labelled 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 for each Likert level. I would then simply like to plot frequencies of responses as the bars, so that each level of the Likert scale would have one for each group (i.e. two bars of frequencies for each of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). My attempt (which creates the look of the graph that I want): clear * input ease_level group1 group2 1 24 26 2 13 15 3 12 12 4 8 6 5 1 6 end graph bar (asis) group1 group2, over(ease) This works well, except my data are not in this format. Rather, they are in the following format: clear * input group ease 1 1 1 1 1 2 1 3 1 5 2 1 2 2 2 3 2 4 2 5 end I have searched the re-shaping commands, but cannot successfully convert my data to this format. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
