Re: st: How to graph several mean trajectories and combine them in a single graph |

Thank you both for the help. I did try your suggestions and did more research. I am able to now graph the dots of means of my variables of interest by wave in a single graph (i.e., means of pr_ and pl_). Here is my command: egen pl_m = mean(pl_), by (wave) egen pr_m = mean(pr_), by(wave) graph twoway dot pl_m pr_m wave However, when I tried to connect the dots using the following command: graph twoway connected pl_m pr_m wave it not only connects the dots but also draw a line from wave 1 dot to wave 5 dot for pr_ and pl_. Do you know how I can do to have only the dots connected for pl_ and pr_ separately but not a straight line from wave 1 to wave 5 datapoints? Hope the question is clear. I am sorry that I am not a native speaker. Sincerely, Han-Jung Ko Han-Jung Ko, M.S.
