Thanks once again to Kit Baum, a new version of the -eclplot- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version of -eclplot-.

The -eclplot- package is described as below on my website, and produces a wide range of confidence interval plots, or even plots of percentiles and ranges. The new version allows abbreviations in the -eplottype()- and -rplottype()- options, which specify the -twoway- subcommands to be used to plot the estimates and confidence limits. For instance, the user can specify -eplot(co)- as an abbreviation for -eplottype(connected)-, or -rplot(sp)- as an abbreviation for -rplottype(spike)-.

Best wishes

      eclplot: Horizontal and vertical confidence interval plots

eclplot creates a plot of estimates with lower and upper confidence limits on one axis against another numeric variable on the other axis. The estimates and lower and upper confidence limits are stored in three variables, in a data set with one observation per confidence interval to be plotted. Data sets with such variables may be created manually (using a spreadsheet), or using the parmest package, or using statsby or postfile in official Stata. The user has a choice of plotting the confidence intervals horizontally or vertically, a choice of plot styles for the estimates, and a choice of range plot styles for the confidence intervals. It is also possible to overlay the confidence interval plot with other plots using the plot() option, and to overlay multiple superimposed confidence interval plots using the supby() option. eclplot may be used either as a command or through a dialog.
