st: Graph with point estimates and ci |

Dear all, I have a dataset with one variable that indicates if each observation (person) have done a certain activity, i.e. 1 or 0. The dataset is from a survey that is conducted several years, so I have information for each year. For each year I want to produce a graph where I have an estimate of the proportion who has done this activity. I would like this to be respresented by a filled circle with lines that represent the confidence interval of the estimae. In the same graph I would also like to have another estimate for a subgroup, presented in the same way. And, finally I would like to add vertical line referring to a known percentage in the whole population, i.e. I want to compare the survey estimates with a known proportion. Then I would like to create similar graphs for different years and combine them. If we are using the auto dataset and considering rep78 as years and foreign as the activity, I could do something like this sysuse auto statsby _b _se, by(rep78) saving(tot, replace): proportion foreign statsby _b _se, by(rep78) saving(subgroup, replace): proportion foreign if subgroup==1 And then I can combine the two resulting datasets and create a graph using -twoway scatter- with "rcap" and "horisontal xline". However, I would like to do this while taking into account the survey design, i.e. using -svy-. Is there some way I can do that in a similar way, or should I take another path to get the same graph? Any help would be greatly appreciated, All the best, Rick * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
