Subject   st: need graph help
Date   Tue, 19 Apr 2011 11:37:13 -0400 (EDT)

Hi all: I am trying to do something that should be easy but I haven't had any luck. I simply want to graph the mean obesity proportion in my data over time by gender. In Stata I have the following. How can I make this into a line graph where I am graphing the trend in proportion obese over time? I really just want to graph the means below with year on the X-axis and proportion obese on the Y by gender. So for 1987, 12 percent of females were obese and 11.9 percent of males were obese. that would be the data point for 1987 etc.
Can anyone help?
thanks,
Susan
