No matter how you produce your PDF graphics files, it is a better format to include in LaTeX than PNG. PDF produces vector graphics, which are fully scalable without loss of resolution. EPS is better for very high-res (such as book publishing, which is why StataCorp uses it in that context for manuals and books) but PDF will be much more flexible than PNG in any context.

And PDF files have the added attraction of being readily viewed on any device with Acrobat-like capabilities, which is just about everything (including my iPhone)...
