<> If you had an over() grouping, you could use the sort() sub option, but that doesn't seem to mesh with your data structure. One quick way I know to get the sorting to work in this case is to use -statplot- (from SSC; use -findit- or type -ssc install statplot- ) of which I am an author. Here's an example: ********* //create some fake data: clear set obs 100 forval n = 1/10 { g q`n' = rbinomial(1, .4) } g one = 1 //graph w. statplot: preserve **for bar labels: forval n = 1/10 { replace q`n' = 100*q`n' } statplot q1-q10, varopts(sort(1)) blabel(bar) ytit(% Answ. Yes) restore ********* - Eric On Jul 28, 2011, at 3:32 PM, O'Brien, Rachel H wrote: > Hi. I am trying to create a bar graph for the means of 10 different variables. Each variable is an indicator for whether or not the survey respondent answered yes to a question (and the respondent could have said yes to multiple questions). I would like STATA to order the bars (variables) by the mean (most frequent --> least frequent). Is there an option or anything that will do this? I know I can do this manually by ordering the variables in the graph bar command based on their means, but I thought I would check if there is a more automatic way. > > Thanks! > > Rachel O'Brien > > * > * 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/ * * 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/
