Hello David, My level of programming in stata is a great limitation. I would be satisfied getting the labels multiplied by 100. In my ado file I read the dataset and the code follows to get the graph graph bar (mean) var1 var2 var3 , bargap(20) yvaroptions(relabel(1 "text1 " 2 " text2" 3 "text3" )) blabel(bar ,position(outside) format(%4.2f)) ytitle("") ylabel( 0 "0" .2 "20%" .4 "40%" .6 "60%" .8 "80%" 1 "100%", angle(horizontal)) title("text4") My question:Should I put this code before graph bar and well done? > . foreach v of varlist var1 var2 var3 { > . gen `v'_pct = 100 * `v' > . } Thank you in advance, Marcos > -----Original Message----- > From: dradwin@mprinc.com > Sent: Thu, 10 May 2012 15:08:03 -0700 (PDT) > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: st: RE: Graph bar with label wtih % symbol at the top of each > bar > > Marcos, > > I don't think you can get the percentage symbol (%) to show, but you can > get the number to show as a percentage if you first multiply your binary > variables by 100, perhaps creating new variables, such as: > > . foreach v of varlist var1 var2 var3 { > . gen `v'_pct = 100 * `v' > . } > > A nice shortcut for labeling your axis is Nick Cox's -mylabels- from SSC. > Don't use the -myscale(@/100)- option in the example below if you first > multiply by 100 as in the example above. > > . mylabels 0(20)100, myscale(@/100) local(pctlabel) suffix("%") > . graph bar (mean) var1 var2 var3, ylab(`pctlabel') > > David > -- > David Radwin > Research Associate > MPR Associates, Inc. > 2150 Shattuck Ave., Suite 800 > Berkeley, CA 94704 > Phone: 510-849-4942 > Fax: 510-849-0794 > > www.mprinc.com > > >> -----Original Message----- >> From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner- >> statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Marcos Vinicius >> Sent: Thursday, May 10, 2012 2:56 PM >> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu >> Subject: st: Graph bar with label wtih % symbol at the top of each bar >> >> Hello, >> I used the following code to plot a graph representing 3 binary > variables >> with ylabel to change the percentage representation.(20% instead of >> 0.20) and blabel to show the label at the top of each bar.
