I usually do this the complicated way but it allows to extend what is plotted e.g. you could show the means and SDs in the plot if you want to (same principle as was used for displaying the variable var in the code below). However, you have to fiddle with the positioning of the different "objects" on the y-/x-scale. I am sure the more advanced Stata users have much simpler solutions ...: Sven **** * Example starts sysuse auto, clear gen index = _n gen var = "" gen mean = . gen sd = . gen lsd = . gen usd = . local n=1 foreach var of varlist price weight { sum `var' replace var = "`var'" in `n' replace mean = r(mean) in `n' replace sd = r(sd) in `n' local n = `n'+1 } replace lsd = mean - sd replace usd = mean + sd replace index = . if var=="" qui sum usd local u = r(max) // could be used to determine range of axis qui sum lsd local l = r(min) // could be used to determine range of axis sum index local i = r(max) + 1 gen labpos = `l'-10 scatter index mean, msymbol(O) yscale(r(1 `i') off) /// || scatter index labpos, msymbol(i) mlabel(var) /// || rspike lsd usd index, hor legend(off) * Example ends -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Patricia Biedermann Sent: Mittwoch, 4.

More like a box plot, but just with mean instead of median and SD instead of quintiles. Or a bar- graph. Is this somehow possible?
