Color palettes for Stata graphics


  • Ben Jann


This paper introduces a command called -colorpalette- that provides a wide variety of color palettes and color generators for use in Stata graphics. Supported are color palettes from official Stata's graph schemes, a selection of palettes that have been proposed by users, standard collections such as the ColorBrewer or D3.js palettes, as well as HSV and HCL color generators. As a byproduct, the paper also introduces commands for marker symbol and line pattern palettes.
