Thanks to Kit Baum, a new package called -logitcprplot- is available from SSC.

-logitcprplot- can be used after logistic regression for graphing a
component-plus-residual plot  (a.k.a. partial residual plot)  for a
given predictor,  including a lowess smooth, local polynomial smooth,
restricted cubic spline smooth, or fractional polynomial fit.

Additional features are the possibility to deal with nonlinear
specifications (e.g., quadratic fit), -if- and -in- qualifiers to
select subsamples (this is useful for models with interaction terms),
and a -sample()- option that is helpful in very large datasets.

To install the package, type

 . ssc install logitcprplot

Stata 9 is required, although the -lpoly- option requires Stata 10.
Furthermore, the sample() option requires the -gsample- and -moremata-
user packages to be installed on the system. See -ssc describe
gsample- and -ssc describe moremata-.

The option to include a restricted cubic spline smooth has been
inspired by the -rcspline- command by Nick Cox (see -ssc describe
rcspline-).

Partial residual plots using the pre Stata 8 graphics engine are
available as -lprplot- by Bill Sribney from the SSC Archive (see -ssc
describe lprplot-) and -lpartr- in the Stata Technical Bulletin (Hilbe
1992).
