I am having trouble adjusting the legend of a simple table. It's a two-way graph and I have one variable (SexRatio) which I'm plotting separately for Blacks and Whites. The variable has no descriptive labeling, so I wanted to change the legend by using the legend- ordering command. Is there an obvious mistake here that someone can immediately point out? Thanks. -sc

. twoway (order (1 "white sex ratio", 2 "black sex ratio")) (line SexRatio age if race==1, lcolor(black) lpattern(dash)) (line SexRatio age if race==2, lcolor(black) lpattern(solid)), ytitle(Ratio of Males to Females) yscale(range(.65 1.1)) xtitle(Age Cohort) xscale(range(0 30)) title(Cohort-Specific U.S. Sex Ratios) caption(All ages are 5- year cohorts)
