However, I have been unable to find how to control color, having explored both the option commands for -scatter- and -bar-. Can you suggest how to do that? I'm seeking a green/yellow/red color scheme for sampled/screened/noreply. *** begin example clear all set seed 1 set obs 1000 gen id=_n gen month=1 + int(12*uniform()) gen year=2008 + int(2*uniform()) gen subject_type=1 + int(3*uniform()) la def lab_subjects 1 "no reply" 2 "screened" 3 "sampled", modify la val subject_type lab_subjects g m=(year-1960)*12+month-1 format m %tmm_CY la var m "Calendar month" levelsof m, loc(vs) foreach v of loc vs { la def m `v' "`:di `:format m' `v''", modify } la val m m * insert Nick Cox's cum freq table by m, sort: gen freq = _N // sort by the variable of interest and get the frequencies by m: gen cumfreq = _N if _n == 1 // get the cumulative frequencies replace cumfreq = sum(cumfreq) // The trick here is to put the frequencies once more into a variable, /// but only once within each group.
