st: How can I change the way Stata clusters the yvars in a bar graph?

Hello all,

I am trying to make a bar graph that contains several y variables grouped over 1 categorical variable that has 2 levels (0, 1). Stata automatically groups all the yvars together for each level of the categorical variable, e.g.,

Cat1: yvar1 yvar2 yvar3 yvar4 Cat2: yvar1 yvar2 yvar3 yvar4

I would like to rearrange the bars into 4 clusters - 1 cluster for each yvar containing both levels of the cat var. e.g.,

yvar1:cat1cat2 yvar2:cat1cat2 yvar3:cat1cat2 yvar4:cat1cat2

I can do this easily in SPSS ("clustered bar graph") but haven't been able to find a way to do it with Stata. I think what I need to do is something like the 'ascategory' option only instead of treating the yvars as the first over group I need them to be the second over group. Is this possible??

Any help is much appreciated!! Deb
