I want to make twoway graphs of the trend over time of the incidence
rate of a rare disease by four groups where this disease varies
strongly. In one group the disease has changed from 5 to 10 per
100,000 live births, in another from 5000 to 10,000 per 100,000 live
births.
I want to do the graphs by(groups). My problem is that the yscale
shows the proportion with lots of decimals, eg 0.00005. I want to
multiply the yscale with 100,000 so that it shows the number per
100,000 live births instead of the proportion with decimals. How can I
do it?
