Hi Shittu,
I totally agreed with both William Buchana and Lars Folkestad. You need to look for help file for- graph bar. This is because you know what you really need. I think a command like this may help in the first part of your question:                              
 .graph bar ranks, over(diseases, label(angle(45))) blabel(bar)

Dear Statalisters,

I have a qualitative data where 8 diseases ranked (1 (most-important) to 5 (least important)) based on perception - 37 subjects were interviewed so 37 records in the dataset. Please what Stata command should I use to plot a bar chart showing the count of responses per category for each disease. I will place diseases on my x-axis and disease ranks on the y-axis (starting with 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 from bottom to the top of the axis), and then stack 5 bars per disease showing the total counts on the top of each bar? I am also interested in the alternative plot of using a single multi-coloured bar per disease (y-axis), and the number of counts (x-axis), and then incorporate a key defining each of the colour.
