st: graph bar

Hi one and all!

I have a question concerning labelling option in combination with graph bar:

Here is my "problem": I want to draw a bar chart, whereby the height of the bar shows the fraction (i.e. percentage) within each category. In addition I want to increase the information of my chart by adding the number of observations on top of each bar chart. Is this possible?

And here is what I have so far:

#delimit ;
graph bar pd, over(cooperator, label(angle(forty_five) labsize(vsmall))) over(category, label(labsize(vsmall)))
  title("", span size(vsmall))
  subtitle("", span size(vsmall))
  ylabel(, labsize(vsmall))
  ytitle(relative frequency, size(vsmall))
  blabel(bar, position(outside) format(%9.2f) color(black) size(vsmall))
  note("", span size(vsmall)) ;
#delimit cr

I think that I have to change something with blabel, but I don't find the appropriate option.

Thank you very much in advance for your time!
Best, Stefan
