Hi Nick,

It comes up when creating stacked bar graphs and/or a wrapper I created at work for your -catplot- package (available from ssc). The context is typically in the case of an observational protocol where the company wants one bar per category per year, where each bar represents the percentage of the total observations in a given year. 

I'll try to find an example graph and post it somewhere later.

Thanks again,
Billy
