Re: st: weight marker symbol fill size and color? |

Dave, I asked a similar question on July 29. http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-07/msg01081.html A weighted scatter plot can be combined with markers in different colors as I learned from Stata tech support. I neglected to share the solution with the list so let me explain today how this can be done. The solution involves duplicating the observations and recoding the group variable in the duplicates. This way the weights are distributed across all groups. Say we want to take the census data from your example and identify the regions with different colors. . webuse census . scatter death medage [w=pop65p], msymbol(Oh) name(A) . twoway (scatter death medage if region==1 [w=pop65p], msymbol(Oh)) (scatter death medage if region==2 [w=pop65p], msymbol(Oh)) (scatter death medage if region==3 [w=pop65p], msymbol(Oh)) (scatter death medage if region==4 [w=pop65p], msymbol(Oh)), name(B) legend(off) I turned off the legend so that it is more easy to see that the markers in graphs A and B have a different size. Next, expand the data and set the added observations to missing so that they won't appear in the graph. . expand 4 . sort state region . replace death=. if mod(_n,4) > 0 The next step is to recode the region in the added observations. . recode region (1=2) (2=3) (3=4) (4=1) if mod(_n,4) == 1 . recode region (1=3) (2=4) (3=1) (4=2) if mod(_n,4) == 2 . recode region (1=4) (2=1) (3=2) (4=3) if mod(_n,4) == 3 Now we can draw a graph in which the markers have the same size as in graph A. . twoway (scatter death medage if region==1 [w=pop65p], msymbol(Oh)) (scatter death medage if region==2 [w=pop65p], msymbol(Oh)) (scatter death medage if region==3 [w=pop65p], msymbol(Oh)) (scatter death medage if region==4 [w=pop65p], msymbol(Oh)), name(C) legend(off) Below is the solution to the example from my original post of July 29. . clear all . input x y weight group 1 1 1 1 2 1 2 1 1 2 4 2 2 2 8 2 end . scatter y x [w=weight], name(A) . twoway (scatter y x if group==1 [w=weight]) (scatter y x if group==2 [w=weight]), name(B) legend(off) . expand 2 . replace x = . if _n>(_N/2) . recode group (1=2) (2=1) if x==. . twoway (scatter y x if group==1 [w=weight]) (scatter y x if group==2 [w=weight]), name(C) legend(off) Friedrich On Sun, Aug 24, 2008 at 11:42 AM, David Airey <[email protected]> wrote: > 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? > > -Dave > > ###------------------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) * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
