SPLITVALLABELS: Stata module to split up value labels for multi-line graph labelling
Abstractsplitvallabels splits the value labels for a variable into multiple chunks, and returns those chunks in a form appropriate for specification as part of a graph command. When the over() variable in, for example, a bar graph has long labels, these labels can overlap each other in the graph. This command breaks up these long labels and packages them in a format appropriate for specification as part of a relabel option. This will create multi-line labels on the graph.
