Update: A final Stata gift: 538 schemes

Since most of my co-authors have now moved on to R, I’m pretty likely to switch to R for good as well — at least for most applications. Thus, this post and the package coming with it is sort of a farewell gift to Stata.

The package is another figure scheme and now available for download in the SSC archive. I really love the design of 538 figures. The schemes presented here pretty much replicate the 538 style. They come with different specifications (538=color with grey background; 538w=color with white background; 538bw=black & white).

In Stata type:

ssc install g538schemes, replace all

help 538

It seems like that you will need to change the graphical preferences manually (preferences>graphical preferences).
