> Dear EpiData users,
> How to make a Boxplot when I have one
quantitative variable and two qualitatives variablesThanks

Two
strategies: 

say you have: age and wish to look at this by sex and
social class 

Variables: age sex rank 

strategy one: 

box age /by=sex
/Ti="Age among those with low social class" if rank = 1
box age /by=sex
/Ti="Age among those with high social class" if rank = 2 

strategy two:


gen i level = 0
if (sex = 1) and (rank = 1) then level = 1
if (sex =
1) and (rank = 2) then level = 2
if (sex = 2) and (rank = 1) then level
= 3
if (sex = 2) and (rank = 2) then level = 4
labelvalue level
/O="Missing information" /1="Male low" /2="Male High" /3="Female Low"
/4="Female High" 

box age /by=level /ti="Boxplot of age by sex and
social class"
box age /by=level /ti="Boxplot of age by sex and social
class" if level > 0
