Description
-----------
^civplot^ produces a display of means and confidence intervals for
different variables, or for different groups of a single variable
defined by the ^by^ option.
^ci^ is used for the calculations. ^graph^ is used for the graphical
display. Each confidence interval is by default shown as a vertical line.
The groups on the horizontal axis are tacitly plotted at 1, ... ,
number of intervals with value labels from the actual values or variable
names.
Options
-------
^by(^byvar^)^ defines a grouping variable. It is only allowed when a
single variable is specified. ^by( )^ is treated as categorical, not
measured.
^level(^#^)^, ^poisson^, ^binomial^ and ^exposure(^varname^)^ are all
options of ^ci^. See help on @ci@.
^total^ adds a final line showing the mean and confidence interval for
all groups specified. It is only allowed in conjunction with ^by( )^.
graph_options are options of ^graph^. See help on @graph@. Note that
^xlabel(1/^number of intervals^)^ is wired in.
^symbol^ defaults to ^"oii"^ (a circle for the mean and invisible
symbols for the the mean).
^connect^ defaults to ^".II"^.
Titles filled in by default may be blanked out or, more generally,
overwritten by options such as ^b2(" ") or t1(" ")^.
Examples
--------
. ^civplot length, by(grade) yla(0(200)1200)^
. ^civplot length, by(grade) yla(0(200)1200) sy(Sii) c(.||)^
. ^civplot length width, yla(0(200)1200) xsc(0.5,2.5) b2(" ")^
