My second answer still seems pertinent to your problem. i.e. 1. gen dummy = 0 2. graph bar (mean) pred_f2002 pred_f2005 dummy pred_c2002 pred_c2005, over(ca_cat) 3. Edit out traces of -dummy-. The bottom line is that you can get exactly what you want if you re-program with -twoway bar-. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Sue Thanks for your input. The variable "ca_cat" actually goes from 1 to 3, for low, medium and high. Is there yet another way to do this because when I use the "dummy solution", it obviously places a gap of the size of a bar, and I'd like that bar to be narrower (so that the 4 bars are still closer to each other than between low, medium and high categories, if that makes sense.).
