Eric's suggestion I think encapsulates most of the available advice on this point. An overarching question is how you could find that FAQ for yourself. . search axis break typed in Stata points to the FAQ Eric identified. A more positive spin than that given in the FAQ is that, sure, you can have axis breaks exactly as you want them. You just need to identify how they imply separate panels, which you produce as separate graphs and then -graph combine-. Otherwise put, there is no syntax specifically designed to produce axis breaks because you don't need it and it would be cumbersome any way. All that said, most of the examples in which I see axis breaks lead to imagine that log scales would have been a much better idea, as Martin Weiss posted and many others must have thought privately. Nick [email protected] DE SOUZA Eric The first two lines of my previous post got cut off. First time it has happened to me. See: http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/graphics/scbreak.html Alex Olssen I have a scatterplot with a couple of outliers. The effect of these outliers is to compress the vast majority of observations into the bottom third of the graph space making it hard to see what is going on with the observations. Rather than dropping the outliers and ignoring them altogether I would like to put a line break through the axis. This would allow the majority of the observations to fill most of the graph space but still highlight to the reader the fact that the outliers exist. I had a look on the Statalist archives but only found a related article during Stata 8. At that time it appeared that axis breaks were not a feature of Stata. Does anyone know if they now are? If so what code should I use? If not does anyone have any suggestions. I have also looked through "A visual guide to Stata graphics" to no avail. * * 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/
