st: RE: Life Tables for Survival Analysis

One way would be to save the life table and then use -twoway connect- with the line patterns you want.

For example:

tempfile rats use http://www.stata-press.com/data/r9/rat.dta,clear ltable t d, by(gr) over saving(`rats') notable use `rats',clear twoway connect sur t1 if gr == 1 , lc(gs1) lp(dash) mcolor(gs1) /// || conn sur t1 if gr == 2, lc(gs12) mcolor(gs12)
