RE: st: Changing the scale of a graph |

I have generated a variable that determines the relative quarters to a specific event : gen byte quarter7=0 if newviol==1 replace quarter7=-7 if F7.newviol==1 replace quarter7=-6 if F6.newviol==1 replace quarter7=-5 if F5.newviol==1 replace quarter7=-4 if F4.newviol==1 replace quarter7=-3 if F3.newviol==1 replace quarter7=-2 if F2.newviol==1 replace quarter7=-1 if F.newviol==1 Subsequently, I computed the median leverageratio for 2 groups (firms in competitive and non competitive industries) by quarter7, sort : egen float medianleverageratiolow = median(leverageratiolow) by quarter7, sort : egen float medianleverageratiohigh = median(leverageratiohigh) Subset of data looks like this: medianleverageratiohigh medianleverageratiolow quarter7 .2334801 .1243232 . .2334801 .1243232 -7 .2958866 .236993 -6 .2957524 .230218 -5 .2953402 .2316445 -4 .3119317 .2338386 -3 .3281921 .2446502 -2 .3232706 .2491048 -1 .3490512 .2641283 0 .2334801 .1243232 . .2334801 .1243232 . .2334801 .1243232 .

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. > >> >> > * > * 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/ * * 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/
