Erika,

The following works fine for me:

sysuse auto
su mpg, d
hist mpg, percent xline(`r(mean)' `r(p50)')

Subject: st: Graphing Histograms and Overlaying A Vertical Line

I am attempting to graph a histogram, overlaying vertical lines
showing the mean and median. I know that the xline option won't get me
what I want, so I went the twoway route. What I'm trying to figure out
is how to get the range for "function" to match what's used for twoway
histogram.

summarize height
twoway histogram height, percent || function y=`r(mean)', range(? ?)

Any thoughts?

Thanks!
Erika
