My best guess is that you don't have enough space to show all your data points so that they are distinct to you. You don't say how many observations you have. -stripplot- is not sensitive to what variables are called.

I have one variable with 4 agegroups of same format as rep78 which 5 have groups and I have a variable with integers ranging from -15 to 15. When I try this command "stripplot mpg, over(rep78) stack h(0.5)" (I even renamed by variables to same name and tested) it will still give stack all observations at same point despite working perfectly when using the autodata. I am very puzzled that things are not working as I tried over and over again. > > Have you ever heard of a similar problem?

By default I only get one point when I want three points. How do I solve this? Dotplot automatically gives three horizontal points when multiples. I would like to have three vertical dots to show that I got three multiple observations. As far I understand will width and stack only compress to one observation and not extend to three observations or I understand things incorrectly? >> >> Fredrik >> >> -----Original Message----- >> From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Nick Cox >> Sent: den 30 augusti 2011 11:36 >> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu >> Subject: Re: st: Transposing dotplot (changing axes) >> >> Maarten is correct.
