How is something like this? You can use -kdensity- to generate variables that form the basis of a graph. ---------------------------------------------------------- clear set obs 5 gen group=_n expand 100 gen x=rnormal(group, 0.5) forvalues i=1/5 { kdensity x if group==`i', gen(k_`i'_x k_`i'_d) nograph replace k_`i'_d=k_`i'_d + `i' - 0.5 local line `line' line k_`i'_d k_`i'_x || } twoway `line', ylab(1/5) ytitle(Group) legend(off) ---------------------------------------------------------- Phil On 07/10/2013, at 10:37 PM, Stefan.Gawrich@hlpug.hessen.de wrote: > Dear Statalisters, > > I was asked to display the age distributions (e.g. kdensity, histogram ...) of several subgroups in one graph. > Age is scaled on the x-axis, another numeric variable on the y-axis. > > The nearest example I found to explain this is -twoway rcap- : > > sysuse sp500, clear > gen num = _n > keep if uniform() <.05 > twoway rcap high low num, hor ylabel(,angle(0)) || scatter num close > > > In this case the y-var 'num' defines the vertical position of each rcap. > > Now exchange each rcap with e.g. a kdensity curve (not available with the given data) and it would be what I'm looking for. > The y-var determines the vertical position of each curve but not it's scaling. > I didn't find any way to create a graph like this. > *** > > Another example would be to place diagrams inside a graph where x/y determines the position only. > Again I don't know how to make this, but I know that -spmap- draws basic diagrams on a map using centroid coordinates. > > > Best wishes > > Stefan Gawrich > Dillenburg > Germany > > > * > * For searches and help try: > * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search > * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ > * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
