I hope I can explain it it. First, let me say that I think I can figure out ways to do this by reorganizing the data. But the time involved in doing this is (at least for me) too long. Consider the example below: http://screencast.com/t/NjUwNmE3YTMt This is a special case of a general problem. Special because in this instance it is a results data set that was made by copying results from Stata to a new data set. In this instance, each named line represents a different variable. The code for one side of the graph is: use raoadotplotdata, clear graph dot (asis) age - all ,ascat ylab(.5 [.1] 1) exclude0 schem(bw) ytit(Concordance coefficient) xsize(4) ysize(5.3) by(type,note("")) Now, what I would really like to be able to do is to not use "by" and have both types of symbols (RA and OA) be displayed on each line. If I simply do over(), the groups are placed far apart. So, in general, I would like a simple way to manage multiple variables and to display the by group or over group results on the same line or immediately below the same line. I have looked at stripplot, the manual, and Michael's book to no avail. It is usually that when I come to conclusions like this there is a simple solution that I have overlooked. I hope it is the case now. Thanks.
