<> Ulrich`s code does not lead to success for me, so here is another take on the problem: ************* clear* set obs 10 gen int quarter=190+_n form quarter %tq expand 10 gen var1 =rnormal() collapse (mean) var1, by(quarter) tw (bar var1 quarter, sort), /* */ xlab(#3, angle(forty_five)) ************* The original call -graph bar (mean) Var1, over (Quarter)- could be augmented by the -relabel()- suboption. The labels to go into it could be produced by NJC`s -ssc d mylabels-, yet would need to start from _1_, not 191 as in my example. Hence the approach above, which avoids the -over- option altogether. HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Asdsa Sdjfkn Gesendet: Freitag, 16. April 2010 05:45 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: graphs with dates question... I want to make a graph with the command: graph bar (mean) Var1, over (Quarter) where Quarter is formatted as %tq. This produces a graph with the number corresponding to the quarter on the x-axis, rather than the actual quarter (e.g. '0' instead of '1960q1'). How can I get the quarter to show up rather than the corresponding number? I'd also like only, say, one quarter a year to be labelled on the x-axis, otherwise there isn't enough room for all the text to fit. I've trawled through the documentation for this, but haven't found anything useful... thanks! * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
