means, side by side. So,

1. Produce three paired-bar charts

2. Put them side by side.

Here is a dopey example:

sysuse auto, clear

foreach v in rep78 headroom gear_ratio {
          graph bar `v', over(foreign) title(`: var label `v'')
name(`v')  ytitle("")
}

graph combine rep78 headroom gear_ratio2 row(1) ycommon note(Mean scores)
