Does anybody know if there is an elegant way to present the number of
cases represented in a graph automatically?
 
sysuse auto
graph hbox mpg, over(foreign)
 
Now I would like to add the count number of nonmissing cases of each
foreign category into the graph either to the labels or the boxplots,
bars etc.
Of course I could do it manually, but I would like to know a more
automatic way.
 
In tabplot (ssc), I find a showval-option that looks similar to what I
need, but I would like to use such an option in other types of graphs.
Nick, if I may express a wish: maybe if possible a showval-option would
be a good addon to your -catplot- and -statplot- programs (both ssc) ;-)
Or have I missed something?
 
Thanks for your helping comments.
 
Marc
