sysuse auto, clear
gen byte number=_n
tw (connected displacement number, sort)

I am trying to generate a graph with smooth-looking lines connecting the

growth) yline(0 2, lwidth(vvvthin) lcolor("192 192 192")) xtitle(Time)
xlabel(-3(1)9) xline(-0.1 1.1 5.1, lcolor("87 87 87") lpattern(dash))
title(GDP Per Capita Growth (%)) subtitle(Constant US$) saving(growth,
