Maria,

This is a pretty standard stacked horizontal bar graph. The trick is:
1) do NOT use the 'percent' option, but compute the shares yourself, then
2) supply the resulting variables in right order (so that l1 of big
has is in the same position from the axis as l1 of large),
3) suppress half of the legend (it is identical for big and small firms), and
4) make Stata recycle the colors within the chart with required period
(3 in your case), and finally
5) relabel the axis (this is shown in the example you quote).

optionally the gaps can be removed like here:

Let me know if you need more help.

Best, Sergiy Radyakin
