I was wondering if it is possible to plot 2 overlapping graphs (not 2
graphs on the same page as is possible with the statagraph combine
command) each representating different regression equations (example one
in sample another out-of-sample). I wish to compare 2 such ROC curves.
gene tpr0=tpr if insamp==0
gene tpr1=tpr if insamp==1
graph tpr0 tpr1 fpr,s(oo) c(LL)
and the graph would then have 2 lines, 1 for -tpr1- against -fpr- and one
for -tpr0- against -fpr-. The general principle is that Stata likes to
graph multiple Y-variables against a single X-variable. If there are
multiple groups, and you want Stata to draw multiple lines (one per group),
then Stata likes you to create multiple Y-variables (one per group), and
plot them against the X-variable.
I hope this helps.
