# st: Bar chart with several different variables on X axis

 From Florian Köhler To Subject st: Bar chart with several different variables on X axis Date Fri, 26 Mar 2010 11:53:52 +0100

```Dear Statalist,

I am trying to generate a bar chart where I have several different variables
on the X-Axis (Var 1 to Var 3 in the example below, identically scaled) and
the according mean on the Y axis. Each of this variables should be split
into three groups according to a categorical variable "Cat" (categories A,
B,C in the example). The graph should look like that.

mean
|
|			___		___
___
|		___	| |		| |
| |
|		| |	| |		| |		___
___	| |
|	___	| |	| |		| |	___	| |
| |	| |	___
|	| |	| |	| |		| |	| |	| |
| |	| |	| |
|	| |	| |	| |		| |	| |	| |
| |	| |	| |
|	| |	| |	| |		| |	| |	| |
| |	| |	| |
|	|A|	|B|	|C|		|A|	|B|	|C|
|A|	|B|	|C|

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Var	1			Var	2
Var	3

Isn't the graph I need pretty common? I find it quite strange that I cannot
figure out how to make it work even after excessive googling ;).

All I managed to get was a bar chart split into three groups A, B, and C
(according to the three categories in variable "cat") and for each of these
groups the mean of var 1 var2 etc was graphed.

Florian
