This help file documents the old version of Stata's graph command. See graph for the modern version.

Stata runs the old version of graph whenever graph is invoked under version control (see version) or when you use the graph7 or gr7 command.

graph7 ... , box ... specifies a box-and-whisker plot. Up to 6 variables may be specified. For an introduction to graph7, see graph7.

Options unique to box

[no]alt forces the labeling of groups to be on single or multiple lines. graph7 chooses whether the text labeling each box should be on the same line or instead alternative between two lines. If you do not like graph7's choice, [no]alt allows you to enforce your preferences. alt forces the staggered look, whereas noalt forces the single-line approach.

vwidth makes the width of each box proportional to the number of observations.

root is used only with vwidth; it specifies the width of the box is to be made proportional to the square root of the number of observations.
