Speaking Stata: Multiple bar charts in table form

Abstract.  Tables that are one way, two way, or three way in structure may often be helpfully represented as multiple bar charts. The one, two, or three variables that define the structure of the table thus determine rows, columns, and panels in which bars are arranged. The merits of this design include easy focus on individual values or groups of values; leaving space for numeric information to be shown as in a table; and convenient axis or panel labeling through text rather than through a key or legend. A Stata command for these purposes, tabplot, is discussed systematically.
