As Maarten [not Maarteen] showed you, using datasets as examples that we can all access makes discussion easier. With sysuse auto graph bar (count) foreign, over(rep78) just counts non-missing values of -foreign- according to classes of -rep78-, so it does not give the joint breakdown of -foreign- and -rep78-, which seems analogous to what you want. We're still guessing at what you want, but my latest guess is -catplot- from SSC. catplot foreign rep78 catplot foreign rep78, missing Nick On Fri, Feb 22, 2013 at 10:01 AM, Keniajin Wambui <kiangati@gmail.com> wrote: > Thanks Maarteen for that, is it possible to get a histogram > > Nick; > The by() graph gives a different plot for every yr , but i guess this > did the magic > graph bar (count) nserial, over(yr) > > but now i want to show the missing values and the non missing on the > same bar.. ie for nserial ; the bar for year 2000 shows the overall > total mayb blue and the total of non missing mayb red > > On Fri, Feb 22, 2013 at 11:24 AM, Nick Cox <njcoxstata@gmail.com> wrote: >> If this is what Kennedy/Keniajin wants, then I would be pleased too. >> >> Otherwise the complaint is unclear to me.
