Hi all,

I have a couple of countries with simulated changes in tax revenues, revenues from contributions, and benefit payments. this also done for three reforms (ref = 1,2,3). So far, I plot them as follows:

This works fine, but you the total effect (tax + sic - ben) is not easily visible this way. Thus, I'd like to add a dot to each indicating the sum of the three, in the spirit graphs like this one: dx.doi.org/10.1787/888933005473

I know that this is possible with twoway bar , but then I face many other problems:

- no nesting possible (by variable ref)

- labelling the x-axis doesn't work if it's a categorical variable (country)

- no control about the space between the bars.

Is this somehow feasible when sticking to graph bar?

Code:

graph bar dtax dsic dben, over(ref, label(angle(90) labsize(vsmall))) over(country) stack legend(rows(1) label(1 "TAX") label(2 "SIC") label(3 "BEN"))
