st: Box Graph Question |

My question refers to a statalist posting under the same subject line as above ("Box Graph Question") from November 1, 2006. I'm running Stata 13 SE. The code below (from Nick Cox) produces a very useful graph of descriptive statistics. My question is whether the elements of the graph (the bars) can be ordered by mean. In other words, if I wanted the bars that the code produces to run from the lowest mean to the highest mean, how would I do that (if possible?). Thanks very much for any help, John Marvel **************************************************** sysuse auto, clear statsby "su mpg" mean=r(mean) max=r(max) min=r(min) sd=r(sd), by(rep78) gen meanpsd = mean + sd gen meanmsd = mean - sd twoway scatter mean rep78 || /// rbar mean max rep78, bcolor(none) barw(0.2) || /// rbar mean min rep78, bcolor(none) barw(0.2) || /// rbar meanmsd meanpsd rep78 , barw(0.1) bcolor(red) /// legend(off) ytitle(Miles per gallon) yla(, ang(h)) /// note(red bars: mean +/- sd; empty bars show range) * * 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/
