Re: st: multiple CI/mean plots in one graphic |

-civplot- is a user-written plot from SSC written in 1999 for Stata 6. I am not surprised that it does not separate out different groups given a command . civplot variable1, by(time) as the command does not even mention -group-. Also, as -njc_stuff- (also SSC) documents, -civplot- is considered obsolete given -ciplot- (also SSC). But better than either is to do it yourself using the principles described in Cox, N.J. 2010. Speaking Stata: The statsby strategy. Stata Journal 10, 143-151. http://www.stata-journal.com/article.html?article=gr0045 The following problem has essentially similar structure to yours and shows some technique sysuse auto, clear statsby mean=r(mean) ub=r(ub) lb=r(lb) , by(foreign rep78) : ci weight separate mean, by(foreign) veryshortlabel separate ub, by(foreign) veryshortlabel separate lb, by(foreign) veryshortlabel scatter mean0 mean1 rep78 || rcap ub0 lb0 rep78 || rcap ub1 lb1 rep78, legend(order(1 2)) However, note that what you have done so far implies that separate days are independent, which may not be quite right!
