Dear Statalist members,

I am (still) using Stata 9.2 and Windows XP.

Does anyone know how to left justify labels of categories for which bars
are drawn, using -graph hbar- ?

I would like to draw a horizontal bar graph that looks like the one shown
in the Graphics Reference Manual (Release 9, p. 40). The following
command, which I copy from it, produces the graph:

sysuse citytemp, clear
graph hbar (mean)tempjan, over(division) over(region) nofill

The resultant graph organizes horizontal bars first by region (N.E., N.
Central, ...) and then by division (N. Eng., Mid Atl., ...).

Here is my question concerning how the labels for regions and divisions
are displayed: Is there a way to have Stat show the labels left-justified
instead of right-justified?

That is, I would like to have Stata show the labels in this way:

     N.E.        N. Eng.
                 Mid Atl.

     N. Central  E.N.C.

     South       S. Atl.

     West        Mountain

Thank you.
