What I think you want can be done. Study this code and adapt to your
circumstances.

sysuse auto, clear
catplot rep78 foreign, percent(rep78)  blabel(bar)

preserve
local Np1 = _N + 1
expand 2
replace rep78 = 6 in `Np1'/L
gen extra = _n >= `Np1'
label def rep78 6 "Total"
label val rep78 rep78
catplot rep78 foreign, percent(rep78 extra) blabel(bar)
restore

On some details:

1. The reference "Cox 2004" is ambiguous even with a guess as to who
and where. References should not have to be guessed: on Statalist we
ask for the same standards of referencing as you would want to
encounter in scholarly or scientific work.

2. The syntax you quote could only work with -catplot- 2.0.0 or later
(SSC 2010).

3. On the form -catplot- rather than CATPLOT please see
