Hello all,

I am trying to make a bar graph that contains several y variables grouped over
categorical variable that has 2 levels (0, 1).  Stata automatically groups all
the yvars together for each level of the categorical variable, e.g., 

Cat1: yvar1 yvar2 yvar3 yvar4       Cat2: yvar1 yvar2 yvar3 yvar4

I would like to rearrange the bars into 4 clusters - 1 cluster for each yvar
containing both levels of the cat var.  e.g.,

yvar1:cat1cat2   yvar2:cat1cat2   yvar3:cat1cat2    yvar4:cat1cat2

I can do this easily in SPSS ("clustered bar graph") but haven't been able to
find a way to do it with Stata.  I think what I need to do is something like
the 'ascategory' option only instead of treating the yvars as the first over
group I need them to be the second over group.  Is this possible??

Any help is much appreciated!!
