Dear Stata list:

My data look like this:

I.e. I have one variable y and its confidence intervals ylb and yub observed in different time periods for which I have a starting and end time.

I would like to create a figure with time on the x-axis and y on the yaxis, kind of like this:

There are two problems with this graph, though:

1) I don't want the vertical lines

2) It only goes to three on the x-axis, yet it should go to 4

The third problem: I would like to add a shaded area around it denoting the confidence interval.

Is there a simple solution to this?

Thanks for your consideration

Joe

My data look like this:

Code:

clear input id y start end ylb yub 1 2.0 0 1 1.9 2.1 2 2.3 1 2 2.2 2.4 3 2.1 2 3 2.0 2.2 4 2.4 3 4 2.3 2.5 end

I would like to create a figure with time on the x-axis and y on the yaxis, kind of like this:

Code:

twoway (line y start, connect(J))
