# st: weight marker symbol fill size and color?

 From David Airey <[email protected]> To [email protected] Subject st: weight marker symbol fill size and color? Date Sun, 24 Aug 2008 10:42:43 -0500

.

At this page, we see how to change symbol size by using (analytic) weights:

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/graphics/gph/graphdocs/scatter5.html

e.g.,

webuse census
scatter death medage [w=pop65p], msymbol(circle_hollow)

Can we change both symbol size and color shading as in the R example below?

###------------------create the test data.frame
y = c(.4, 1, 2.15, 1.8, 2.7, 2.2, 1.3, .25, 1.1, .1)
x = c(.35, .4, .41, 1.4, 2.1, 2.25, 2.15, 2.2, 1.45, 1.3)
z = c(9, 7, 7.5, 7.3, 7, 7.1, 7.75, 9.5, 8, 10)
d = data.frame(x = x, y = y, z = z)

d\$col = gray(.5)
d\$col[d\$z>=9] = gray(.2)
d\$col[d\$z<7.5] = gray(.7)
#thikness = sqrt(d\$y^2 + d\$x^2)
thikness = abs(d\$y) + abs(d\$x)

###----------------simple, 2-D plot
plot(d\$x, d\$y, pch=19, cex=(d\$z-min(d\$z)/1.5), xlim = c(-1.5,4), ylim = c(-2.5,5), col=d\$col)
