```Dear Scott,
Thank you for your quick response.
This helped tremendously.
I have weighted categorical data so I collapsed to
sums and followed the procedure with generating an
additional category for total in the over() variable.
Thank you! This is a wonderful resource.
Anna

Do you mean something like this?

sysuse educ99gdp, clear
set obs 11
replace country = "Total" in 11
qui sum pub
replace pub = r(sum) in 11
qui sum priv
replace priv = r(sum) in 11
generate total = private + public
graph hbar (asis) public private, ///
over(country, sort(total) descending) stack percent
///
title("Spending on tertiary education, by public and
private", ///
span pos(11))  subtitle(" ") ///
note("Source: OECD, Education at a Glance
2002",span)
