Yes the y-axis grid shows the intervals 0.20 0.21 0.22 ... 0.35 but leaves alot of white space at the bottom. Therefore, the scatter looks the same as it did without the ylabel constraint but with different intervals. ---------------------------------------- > Date: Thu, 7 Jun 2012 10:16:56 +0100 > Subject: Re: st: Changing the scale of a graph > From: njcoxstata@gmail.com > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > > Sounds good then, or is there still a problem? > > Nick > > On Thu, Jun 7, 2012 at 10:12 AM, sebas nicaise <sebasnicaise@hotmail.com> wrote: > > > I typed the command: scatter medianleverageratiohigh medianleverageratiolow quarter7, ylabel(0.20(0.01)0.35) > > > > When I plot the original graph,scatter medianleverageratiohigh medianleverageratiolow quarter7, I do not have any outliers.

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. > > 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.
