<> " Possibly this is the command you would want to use for more recent versions of Stata, but I am not sure." Nope, yours still works fine, even though the -twoway- version would probably be preferred these days. Stata 11 processes this w/o complaining: ******* clear* set obs 5 gen byte year=_n expand 1000 gen var=rchi2(5)+year kdensity var if (year==1), plot(kdensity var if /// (year==2)||kdensity var if (year==3)) legend(ring(0) pos(2) /// label(1 "1999") label(2 "1989") label(3 "1979") ) ******* HTH Martin -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Christopher Hajzler Sent: Dienstag, 2. März 2010 22:53 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: how to draw several kdensity curves in one graph I should have mentioned one more thing: I use an older version of Stata (Stata 8), but when I was researching commands, some instructions mentioned "addplot" instead of just plot, but this did not work for me. Possibly this is the command you would want to use for more recent versions of Stata, but I am not sure.
