st: RE: Removing the overall variable label and using only variable value in sts graph |

Hi all, Seems I didn't look hard enough, this does the trick: sysuse cancer.dta, clear stset studytime, failure(died) drop if drug == 2 sts graph, by(drug) /// legend(label(1 "1") /// label(2 "3")) However, how do you find out which order your labels come in - I had to try a few combinations to get the right order (I was relabelling the confidence intervals until I changed it) - is there a more eloquent way of listing the relative order of each value in the legend? Best wishes Tim -----Original Message----- From: Tim Evans Sent: 24 February 2012 09:14 To: 'statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu' Subject: Removing the overall variable label and using only variable value in sts graph Hi all,, I'm using Stata 11.2 and am creating and exporting some Kaplan Maier curves but I want to drop the variable label from the legend in my sts graph so that I only have the value rather than both. For instance, if I run the following code: webuse drug2 sts graph, by(drug) I end up with a legend that shows drug = 0 and drug = 1 What I would like to do is drop the 'drug' and return only 0 or 1. There are many reasons for this, not least because if I have more than a few values in the variable, the legend becomes a little unwieldy and I also entitle the graph so that its clear what I'm graphing. I've had a search around on Google but don't seem to be able to find exactly what I want. So any help gratefully received.
