Ahh, sorry, I forgot the code, though it is nothing surprising, I think:

sts if clean == 1, hazard by(reviewerrole)  tmax(60) ///
	title("Completion hazards by treatment group") ///
	xline(45) xline(28) xline(21, lc(green)) xline(38, lc(green))
graph export refhazard.pdf, replace

cap drop hazard
sts generate hazard = h, by(reviewerrole)
