As Nick says, everything rides on the question whether you want the graphs
in one panel, or whether they might be -graph combine-d later - in which
case Nick`s suggestion of -if-s and -over-s is back in business...

Betreff: st: RE: RE: RE: AW: Graph Box Question

I have measurement values at specified locations over the years 2000 - 2009.
These measurement values were generated using three different analytical
methods. Method 800: 2000 - 2004; Method 802: 2005 - 2007; Method 811: 2000
- 2009. I have been trying to examine the data  for different methods during
the time periods in which the methods were used. I have tried various
combinations of -if-s and -over-s without success. Hence the SOS.

To answer your question: brick wall.

What roadblock did you meet? 

Some combination of -if- and -over()- would seem sufficient for either

Thanks so much, Martin. Your suggestion did the trick. Much appreciated.

One idea would be to separate beforehand:

sysuse nlswork,clear
separate hours, by(inrange(year, 70,72)) gen(firstsepa) separate hours,
by(inlist(year, 70,73,76)) gen(secondsepa) label variable firstsepa1
`"Variable for Hours in Years 1970-1972"'
label variable  secondsepa1`"Variable for Hours in Years 1970, 1973, 1976"'
graph box firstsepa1 secondsepa1, legend(rows(2))

I have data collected during the years 2000 -2009. I want to boxplot one of
the data variables, but I've hit a roadblock attempting to plot only that
variable for certain years.
How would I boxplot data for: (1) years 2000 - 2003, and (2) for years, say,
2000, 2003, and 2007? Thanks for your assistance.
