You are not giving the Stata command you typed or telling us much about your data. There must be a reason why you get a lot of white space. Most obviously one or more outlier(s) need to be accommodated. As already emphasised in this thread, whatever you do to -ysc()- or -yla()- will not cause data to be omitted. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk sebas nicaise Thank you for the replies, this is indeed what I asked but there is still alot of ''white'' in the graph. I want to present the (small) increase in leverageratio, but with these commands it still looks like a very mild upward slope. So my question is: How can I magnify these very small changes into the graph? Saqlain RAZA > try with ylabel(0.25(0.01)0.30) sebas nicaise > When I do that the graph does not look nice. I want the y-axis to have very small intervals e.g 0.25 0.26 0.27 0.28 0.29 0.30. LukasBork@hotmail.com > > just use -yscale(range(0 0.25))- to rescale your y-axis the way you want to!
