Hi all,
I am trying to plot income shares by quintile for five survey years.
My problem is that the graph that the following command generates places the y-axis title too close to the y-axis so that it gets super-imposed on the axis labels and makes the graph looks messy.
I have looked at the graphics manual and experimented with the options graphregion, marginstyle, position, ring and justification, but have not been able to solve the problem.
Can someone please help?
Thanks in advance,

twoway (line Quintile1 Quintile2 Quintile3 Quintile4 Quintile5 Year), ylabel(0(10.0)50.0) ytitle( "Share of Income %") xlabel(1 "1980" 2 "1985" 3 "1990" 4 "1995" 5 "2002") xtitle( "Year" ) leg(rows(1)) 
graph display, ysize(4) xsize(7)
graph save quin, replace
