Stata 15 help for gr7twoway

help gr7twoway (out-of-date command) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------


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.

Graph two-way scatterplots (graph7, twoway command)

graph7 ... , twoway ... specifies a two-way scatterplot; this is the default for graph7 when more than one variable is specified. twoway may be combined with oneway (see gr7oneway) or box (see gr7box), but in that case, you must specify twoway explicitly.

For an introduction to graph7, see graph7.

Options unique to twoway

jitter(#) adds spherical random noise to each point before graphing, where # represents the magnitude of the noise as a percent of graphical area. The default is jitter(0). jitter(5) is a large amount. (This is useful to keep categorical data from overplotting.)

rescale scales each y-variable independently. If there are two y-variables, the scale of the first is presented on the left (x) axis and the scale for the second on the right (r) axis. If there are more than two y-variables, no vertical scale is labeled.

rbox places a rangefinder box plot on the graph.

{y|x|r}reverse reverses the indicated scale to run from high-to-low.


Since twoway is the default for graph7 with more than one variable:

. graph7 y x (graphs y against x)

. graph7 y1 y2 x (graphs y1 and y2 against x)

Here are more involved examples:

. gr7 mpgfor mpgdom weight, xlog ylab xlab l1("Mileage (mpg)")

. gr7 clnsl herd time, c(ll) rescale ysca(2000,3500) rsca(700,1100) ylab(2500(250)3500) rlab(700(50)900) xlab(1967(1)1975) t1(U.K. Pig Production)

This one additionally uses the box style:

. gr7 mpg displ, two box rbox ylab xlab border
