Hi Statalist,

I have three category variables with following value labels

Education:   1 ==yes 2== No
Region: Punjab==0 Sindh==1 KPK==2 Balochistan==3
urban: urban==0 rural==1

I followed following suggestions by Nick

Here's the flavour of a -reshape- solution
> sysuse auto , clear
> local lab1 "`: var label foreign'"
> local lab2 "`: var label rep78'"
> rename (foreign rep78) (catforeign catrep78)
> reshape long cat , i(make) string
> replace _j = "`lab1'" if _j == "foreign"
> replace _j = "`lab2'" if _j == "rep78"
> catplot cat _j , percent(_j) nofill recast(bar)

I am facing a problem in plotting graph because when I reshape, value labels for education and region disappear and there is only rural urban in "cat" variable along with some numbers. I guess I have to rework value labels and put some unique values, Even I tried this but still not working.

Have any body idea, what mistake I am doing and what is solution?
