```I tend to use a trick with levelsof for doing things like this:

. levelsof order if !inlist(order,3,6,9), local(K)

. eclplot rate lci uci order in 1/12 ///
, horiz xline(.018) ylab(`K', valuelabel) ///
estopts(msize(vlarge)) ciopts(msize(vlarge)) ///
scheme(bw) xtit(Annual HAQ progression rate) ytit("")
