I use "label=(angle=90)" in the axis statement to rotate the label of the
I use 'subgroup' to color the bars, and I put 2 different values in that
variable so that my bars are 2 different colors.

was not labeled correctly. I sent the correction to the magazine (American
Demographics), and they studied it and agreed with my correction, and they
printed the correction in their September 2004 magazine :)
