Thanks for responses.

I have multiple observations at time points, e.g. three persons who are in oldest age group with 10 years difference. By default I only get one point when I want three points. How do I solve this? Dotplot automatically gives three horizontal points when multiples. I would like to have three vertical dots to show that I got three multiple observations. As far I understand will width and stack only compress to one observation and not extend to three observations or I understand things incorrectly?

Maarten is correct. You can use -stripplot- to get horizontal
analogues of -dotplot-. The horizontal comes by default; you will need
to spell out -stack- and you may need to control bin width using

My dotplot shows years on y-axes. I want to have that on x-axis, i.e. I want to transpose my dotplot. Is it possible to do that or can I generate a different stata graph so that I get my dotplots horizontally instead of vertically?
