Abstract

In Stata, graphs are usually generated by one call to the graph command. Sometimes, however, it would be convenient to be able to add objects to a graph after the graph has been created. In this article, I provide a command called addplot that offers such functionality for twoway graphs, capitalizing on an undocumented feature of Stata’s graphics system.
