I have a panel data set for several industries spanning a twenty year time period.
The variable I am trying to plot is the value of a financial ratio across time for each industry.
The range of this ratio value differs by industry.
For eg. industry-1 has a range of (0 .0068227,  0.0537253) while industry-2 has a range of (0.0102397 ,  0.2309189) for the same ratio.
The overall sample range for this variable is (0,  0 .237276)
Is there anyway to get xtline to plot graphs for each industry panel using the range applicable to only that industry as opposed to the range for the entire sample.
I understand I can create the graphs one industry at a time to resolve this issue.

Thank you



Use the byopts option "yrescale", like this:

. webuse grunfeld
. xtline invest, byopts(yrescale)
