>> You are only creating a bar - in a sense - for avrpercr_b and are partitioning it over the variables in the -over()- options.  The easiest way I've found to deal with these situations (since the normal solution typically evades me at the time I need it) is to create a dataset with the appropriate summary statistics and then use the -(asis)- optional argument to work around it.  Michael Mitchell's book is almost always helpful in these instances (available from StataPress).
