Hello again all,
I have managed to get some graphs for some countries.
I have managed to generate  variables that sums  my xvar (income and
consumption) across regions for each year.
This means that countries in region Western would then have the same
value of sum for each year. I just need to graph that new variable
sum_x1 for Western region and Northern region against year (overlaid).
 I am not sure how to combine Northern and Western in one graph and
how do I ask Stata to just do one graph (and not repeat the same graph
for all countries in Western and Northern region separately).
Thank you in advance for your help.
