Re: st: dot chart with ci

nevermind my earlier question, I found a solution. I case anyone is
interested, this is what used:
twoway (scatter group est1) (rcap est1_u est1_l group, horizontal) ///
(scatter group est2) (rcap est2_u est2_l group, horizontal), ///
ylabel(1/13, valuelabel angle(0)) ytitle("")
where est1 and est2 are the two estimates, and est1_l and est1_u are
the lower and upper bounds (same for est2). And group is my grouping
variable. I use the value labels for that variable as well (after
using sencode to change it from string to numeric)
All the best, Rick
