Dear Antonis,

you have to label your time-variable, e.g. like:

***********************************************
 clear
 set obs 1000

 egen id = seq(), block(10)

 egen time = seq(), to(10)

 format time %tq
 
 label define test 1 "1960q1"   /* define a value label */
 label values time test
 
 gen response = ceil(3 * runiform())

 catplot response time, percent(time) recast(bar) asyvars stack

***********************************************


Johannes
