Thank you nick. My personal habit of avoiding egen will have to change..... Are you familiar with 'defv', which is a wrapper for gen/replace that 'self'-documents on the fly by adding to notes about the variable names so created/modified? It does not work with egen, as far as I know. Have another nifty command to document egen commands on the fly, or a modification of defv that works with egen? See defv: TITLE STB-51 dm50_1. Update to defv. DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S) STB insert by John R. Gleason, Syracuse University Support: loesljrg@accucom.net After installation, see help defv INSTALLATION FILES (click here to install) dm50_1/defv.ado dm50_1/defv.hlp ------------ -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Nick Cox Sent: Monday, November 16, 2009 12:22 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: RE: RE: RE: old question, new solutions? These problems you mention are barely problems. You can compute groups sds with -egen- in advance. That's one extra line. You don't need to -collapse- at all. The price of not doing -collapse- may be a bloated graph file, but you can use -egen, tag()- to select one data point per group. If you don't want to see the data points on -stripplot- you just specify --ms(none)-. No special option is needed. There are examples in the help file. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Hoffman, George Nick and Jose -- almost but not quite. Serrbar requires computing the sd/ci and collapse prior to invoking serrbar. Stripplot plots all the individual values in addition to means with the bar option. Is there any way to suppress plotting the individual values in stripplot? 'graph dot (mean) Y (p25) Y (p75) Y, over(X)' will compute stats internally. It couldn't be too far to include sd's / ci's in stats.....?

But personally I'd prefer -stripplot- from SSC. Check out its -bar- option. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Nick Cox The official command -serrbar- does precisely this. Hoffman, George Has anyone found/written/adapted a program which will plot means +/- sd for observations of Y over categories X, without drawing a connecting line between means (as in grby)? The desired solution would be like 'graph box Y, over(X)' except that box would be a single symbol with upper and lower ranges for sd or sd. Nick cox' civplot is close, but doesn't allow sd's. I've gotten around this by using joanne garrett's 'predxat' but that plots se's not sd's. I understand some of the reasons why not to use this sort of display, but it does occasionally become useful to display data. * * 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/ * * 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/
