That would not be a line plot, which was requested. Here's another way with the same dataset: egen mean = mean(age), by(year) egen tag = tag(year) twoway line mean year if tag, sort twoway connected mean year if tag, sort Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Weiss Of course you can: ************* use http://www.stata-press.com/data/r11/nlswork.dta, clear graph bar (mean) age, over(year) ************* You can also -preserve-/-restore- your way around the destruction of your data... Yann DE MEY Thank you for this working solution. However, a method that does not clear/replace my current dataset would be more practical. I really feel like this is a simple 'problem' and hope there is another easy command? Nick Cox -collapse- first; then it's -twoway line-. Yann DE MEY I have a very simple problem: I have a panel dataset and would like to easily get an overview graph that plots the mean of all observations as a function of year and connects them with a line. Basically I want to plot the results from: table year, contents (mean VARIABLE) The 'mband' command is the closest I found, but this command uses the median and not the mean. * * 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/
