st: RE: labels for x-axis of graph
Here are few options.
1. Use horizontal bars.
2. Use the -label(alternate)- option. In your case ...relabel(1 "No
Welfare.....") label(alternate) )
3. Use the -label(labsize(small))- option. This can be used with the
alternate: -label(alternate labsize(small))-
4. Use the angle option: -label(angle(45)-
Hope this helps,
