This sounds like something I was playing with a couple of weeks ago. I came up with the following to match one of the figures in a paper I was reading: ID year cause1 cause2 cause3 cause4 cause5 cause6 cause7 1 1 150 25 28 31 13 7 77 2 2 125 38 28 38 12 3 55 3 3 129 38 38 27 26 16 71 4 4 134 35 47 28 20 19 68 5 5 103 39 31 24 27 21 68 label define yearlbl 1 "1981" 2 "1986" 3 "1991" 4 "1996" 5 "2001" label values year yearlbl graph bar (asis) cause1 cause2 cause3 cause4 cause5 cause6 cause7,stack over(year) /// legend(order(1 "CHD" 2 "Lung" 3 "Cancer" 4 "Lungdis" 5 "Injury" 6 "Suicide" 7 "Other")) /// ytitle("Title") ylabel(0 100 200 300 400,ang(hor)) bar(1,color(black)) bar(2,color(gray)) title("Males",pos(11)) I'm a novice with graphs...but this seemed ok for my purposes. So age group would replace 'year' in this example; and you would have 12 causes rather than 7. Feel free to ignore: it may not be what you are looking for. Would be very interested, however, to know your final solution!
