I am not sure if the absolute distance is the same, but here is one attempt: local var rep levelsof `var',local(levels) foreach l of local levels { qui sum mpg if `var' == `l' local a`l' = ceil(r(mean)) disp `a`l'' local suma = `suma' + `a`l'' } foreach l of local levels { local grsize`l' = (`a`l''/`suma')*100 disp `grsize`l'' } foreach l of local levels { graph bar mpg if `var' == `l', /// name(gr`l', replace) fysize(`grsize`l'') local name "`name' gr`l'" } graph combine `name' , cols(1) graph drop `name' Scott On Wed, Sep 15, 2010 at 9:16 AM, Friedrich Huebler <fhuebler@gmail.com> wrote: > Thank you, Kieran.
