Hi,

I'm trying to make a plot with income for different cohorts, by number
of years in the labor force. Because I have many cohorts I would like
to forget about putting the legend in a box and instead I would like
to put, at the side of each line, to which cohort the line belongs. Is
there any way to do this? Please note that for each cohort, by
construction the final observation is to the left of the one of the
previous cohort because later cohorts have been in the labor force for
less time. I would like the "legend" to respect this so for each
cohort the legend should be at the end of the line of that cohort.

A sample of my data is the following

clear
input cohort rinc2001 year_labor_force
1988 90973.04 1
1988 109293.6 2
