A couple of footnotes:

1. -labmask- is user-written. For other examples of how to use it, see

SJ-8-2  gr0034  . . . . . . . . . .  Speaking Stata: Between tables and graphs
        (help labmask, seqvar if installed) . . . . . . . . . . . .  N. J. Cox
        Q2/08   SJ 8(2):269--289
        outlines techniques for producing table-like graphs

2. When using -twoway- for this kind of graph, the y axis ticks can
also be dropped:

yla(, notick)
