The cumul command provides a smoother plot than displot. e.g.: sysuse auto kdensity mpg, g(a b) nograph cumul b, g(cb) line cb b displot line mpg Amadou DIALLO.

Subject: RE: st: kdensity harvard.edu 04/25/2005 05:58 AM Please respond to statalist If you want a plot of a (?smoothed) distribution function, this is at best a rather indirect route. Note first that -distplot- is a program dedicated to plotting distribution functions. -search distplot- points to locations. It is smart enough that you can go directly to something like . distplot line Y X without doing overlays. If the results are not smooth enough, an alternative is to base a plot on estimated rather than observed quantiles. One command for quantile estimation is -hdquantile- from SSC.
