Nick, unfortunately in my concrete examples the best graphs need stacked graphs and then blabel does not help much, or do I miss something again?

sysuse auto
catplot rep78 foreign, perc(foreign) stack asyvars blabel(bar)

-catplot- does not need such an option. You can reach through and use the -blabel(bar, )- option of -graph bar- or -graph bar-. There are examples in the help, which stresses that "[s]howing numbers as text as well by graphical elements can be helpful".

This works with the dot chart variant too.

Same applies to -statplot-.
