LSMEANS produces the CONDITIONAL adjusted mean (conditional on the x-bars).
Marginal effects at the mean are equivalent.  In my opinion, conditional
means should only be used with linear (mean based) models.  For a more
complete discussion, see (as usual) Korn, E. & Graubard, B. "Marginal
Predictions for Survey Data" Biometrics, about June 1999.  I don't have the
article handy, so I might be a bit off on the title.  You can ignore the
survey design issues if you don't have survey data.  The rest stays the

LSMEANS produces the adjusted mean for each class of a variable of interest.

Exemple : 

proc glm;
 class age Cas sexec; 
 model vitA  = age Cas sexec;
 lsmeans Cas / stderr;

In this case, lsmean give the mean ajusted by sexe and age of vitamine A for
each class of the variable Cas : case and control.

Equivalent in STATA : ???

Thank's for your help !
