> I'd reorder in a different way. The graphs you link to make comparisons easiest between activities and within countries, which is not the most interesting comparison, in my opinion. More interesting to compare between countries and within activity, like so:
> bysort activity: egen mean = mean(hours)
> gen hrs_mean = hours - mean
> twoway bar hrs_mean country, horizontal by(activity , graphregion(color(white)) ixaxes note("")) lcolor(gs3) fcolor(gs3) barwidth(0.85) ytitle("") ylabel( 1(1)6 , valuelabel angle(0) nogrid tlength(0)) xline(0, lcolor(gs0)) yscale( lcolor(white) ) aspect(0.75) subtitle( , fcolor(white) lcolor(white) justification(left)) xtitle("hours above or below mean")
