I think you have two main options.

1. Draw the graph and change the text labels in the Graph Editor.

2. Start again, using -collapse- or -statsby- to get a reduced dataset
and use -twoway bar- etc.

I know that is not your example, but starting bars for Fahrenheit
temperatures at 0 really does not make much scientific or statistical
