Hello All

Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -eclplot- package is now available on SSC. In Stata, type

ssc inst eclplot

to install it.

The -eclplot- package (short for "Estimates and Confidence Limits PLOT") is described as below on my website. The new version has a new dialog, which should be easier to use than the old dialog. This is because -eclplot- gives the user the choice of 8 range plot types (corresponding to the 8 range plot types of -graph twoway-), and these have distinct overlapping sets of available "Confidence limits" options, and the -eclplot- dialog now enables the options available under the currently selected range plot type and disables the rest.

I would like to thank James Hassell for his very helpful dialog program examples (which he gave on Statalist in response to my queries), and to thank all at StataCorp for providing and documenting their dialog language.

Best wishes


package eclplot from

eclplot: Horizontal and vertical confidence interval plots

eclplot creates a plot of estimates with lower and upper confidence limits
on one axis against another numeric variable on the other axis. The estimates
and lower and upper confidence limits are stored in three variables, in a
data set with one observation per confidence interval to be plotted. Data
sets with such variables may be created manually (using a spreadsheet),
or using the parmest package, or using statsby or postfile in official Stata.
The user has a choice of plotting the confidence intervals horizontally or
vertically, and a choice of range plot styles for the confidence intervals,
and may also overlay the confidence interval plot with other plots using the
plot option. The user may use eclplot either as a command or using a dialog.
