As I understand it, you don't need to create deciles at all for your problem. Why you asked the question in the first place is now something of a mystery! As the issue now seems to be how to draw a particular graph, I note that what are called "decile plots" in the paper referred to are just standard scatter plots with a line of equality through the origin. That is achieved by e.g. -twoway scatter ... || function equality = x, ... but naturally you have to calculate what is being plotted first. It's impossible for any individual to know about usages of graph terminology across all disciplines, but to me the term "decile plots" conveys only that deciles are being plotted, or that results are being plotted by decile. I wouldn't be surprised by either usage. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Argyn Kuketayev in original paper they'd have stub3 variable continuous, which they would slice into deciles, then compute the actual failure rates within these deciles and show on Y-axis. that's why they call it decile plot. in my case, stub3 is discrete, so i don't really need deciles, but simply groups by stub3. hence, you're right there's no deciles in my problem, but it's very similar, and i thought the solution would be the same. i thought there would eb a standard plot called "decile plot", which i'd plug my data into and get a nice graph On Wed, Jul 6, 2011 at 7:33 PM, Nick Cox <njcoxstata@gmail.com> wrote: > Sorry, Argyn, but this makes no sense to me.
