These pages also contain all .pdf figures created by the Stata .do files. In many cases, additional related statistics are available and can easily be included in the figures by modifying the associated Stata .do files as desired. All Stata .do files describe available options for samples (e.g., men, women, both) and related statistics in comments near the top of the programs.
