Many thanks for your replies. I'll try both tableau and treemap.
Coming back to stata, Nick we wanted a static version, as it seems to
me stata' graphs are not dynamic, and this is fine for us as far as
the graphs are concerned. You said, I need to assemble calls to plot
individual tiles. How do I do that? Thanks in advance.
