Nick pointed out invlogit(), which does not appear in the function list of density functions, but of math functions. Quite so, but it doesn't save much typing:

local cum1 1/(1+exp(-((_b[_cons]+ _b[trunk]*mut + _b[mpg]*mum + _b[d]*1) - mu)/s))

scalar onea = invlogit((_b[_cons]+ _b[trunk]*mut + _b[mpg]*mum + _b[d]*1 - mu)/s)

will indeed generate the same values, but you still have to compute mu and s and include them in the function argument.

In my prior example I had the line

gen d = (runiform()>0.7)

which did not appear in the posting.
