Bar(s)/mixed with line

Postby khazeit » Mon Feb 28, 2011 8:12 am

Hello,

Does anyone know how to mix a stacked bar for multiple variables, with one variable with a mixed line?

ex. graph c1.bar(s) var1 var2 linevar
where var1 and var2 are stacked bar charts

as a follow up, I can't seem to figure out how to specify eviews to pick out the last variable to make as a line chart (b/c it is the sum of first three):

graph p2.bar(s) var1g var2g var3g varsF
p2.bar(l,a)

any help would be appreciated

EViews will either stack or draw a mixed graph, but not both at the same time.

Thanks Pamela. That's a shame though, as this is easy to do in excel.

What if I am not stacking, and instead choose to show a spike chart. Can I specify which variable to be my line in that line of multiple variables?

The first series will always be of the type you choose (spike, bar, or area), and the rest of the series will be lines.

Right, but I want to reverse that...instead of the rest being lines, I would like them to be bars or spikes and only one line. Is this possible?

No, unfortunately, that isn't possible. I can see that it would be useful; hopefully it will be included in EViews in the future.

Hi there, I am using Eviews 9.5 and would like to know if in recent versions of Eviews is possible to make a stacked bar chart (3 series) and include a 4th line. It is a chart in which I would like to draw a line with the growth rate of a given variable and then with bars the contributions to growth. Moreover, is it possible to do directly using a matrix object instead of a group?
Cheers,
Fede
