You can produce graphs using Stata's new GUI, or you can produce them using Stata's command language.

The overall look of graphs is determined by their scheme. The graphs above we have shown using Stata's default scheme. For instance, we might start with this


and then, just by changing the scheme, produce this:

g_linee g_linee

The above left graphic was produced using the economist scheme, which has a look similar to that used by The Economist magazine. The settings for specific attributes can also be adjusted for a more customized look, as in the graph on the right.
