It would be nice to apply another design idea, which is to scale the
labels to 1 or 2 digits, with the scaling explained in the title.  Eg

gen thou=1/1000
hist y [weight=thou], freq ylab(10(10)40,ang(h)) \*
*/                      ti(Freq of y) t2(in thousands)

Unfortunately, hist only allows integer weights.  I can't see why.

The management here were SO impressed with W Edward Deming's "Out of
the crisis" that they are working flat out to create THE BEST crisis;
then they can start implementing the 13 obligations.
