Dear statalisters,

I have a question regarding graphing data in Stata/MP 10.1 for windows. 
The dataset details services provided by hospitals managed under public benefit corporations.
Each public benefit corporation (PBC) may manage between 1 to 13 hospitals. 
A list of 147 services were identified across the entire range of hospitals and thus each row of the original dataset consisted of: 
a public benefit corporation, each hospital under the umbrella of this PBC, and the 147 services which could be potentially provided at each hospital. 
Initially I extracted the data into rows (as I did not know what the nature or distribution of hospitals or services was) I then reshaped the data, to give the structure below(a simple panel)- I have limited the example no. of hospitals to 5 and services to 4.  

Public benefit corporation   hospital   Service Accident and emergency     Service Alcohol addiction  Service  Allergy services  Service  Anaesthesia services
a				1		yes
a				2
a				3						yes
a				4
a				5
b				1
b				2						yes
b				3
b				4
b				5										yes			yes	
c				1						yes
c				2
c				3
c				4		yes
c				5

I would like to be able to graphically illustrate the various cluster types observed in each PBC -nesting if possible service, within hospital, within PBC 
Any ideas on what I should look for in the manual to start this process 

Many thanks
