Dear Nick, Indeed I've seen some java code for tree maps on google. But translating this into stata/mata is way beyond my limited skills. I think this is something for StataCorp or you, if you plan to develop such tool (:-)). Nonetheless, this thread has directed me to other important tools and I want to thank the group for its help. 2014-02-03, Nick Cox <njcoxstata@gmail.com>: > I have no short-cut here.
