Hello, 

I have a series of categorical variables.  For each one, I would like to create a quick bar graph that displays the count (frequency) of each category, but also the percentage.

For example, if it was an "hbar" graph, it might look something like this:

__________
          | 10
__________|(33.3%)
_________________
                 | 16
_________________|(53.3%)
____
    | 4
____|(13.3%)


I intend to use a "foreach" loop to iterate through the list of categorical variables, so I am looking for a solution that can be automated for each variable in my list.  I don't mind if the solution uses catplot or hbar or something else.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot in advance!!

Adam
