Dear Marteen, I was following your discussion with Pradeep on calculation of marginal effects of quadratic terms. I have the impression that the command nlcom is not available in the 8 release. (I have only the 7) Is there any other command I could use instead?

Furthermore - mfx - won't calculate the marginal effects you want if you include a quadratic term, so you'd probably have to do that manually. Alternatively you could use the fact that the ologit is linear in the log(odds), i.e. the log(odds) of belonging to one group versus all `lower' groups is a linear function of the explanatory variables. So you could plot or tabulate the odds ratio for various values of your explanatory variable. Have a look at chapter 5 of `Regression models for categorical dependent variables using Stata', by Scott Long and Jeremy Freese if you want to know more than I can tell you through this list.
