<> Try this and check it very carefully. I could not find such a picture in Long and Freese (2006), http://www.stata-press.com/books/regmodcdvs.html, - which I regard as a bad sign. Also note I am using the old -mfx- here, as I have not fully gotten my head round the -margins- command. Hence the -version- statement... ************* vers 10.1 qui{ sysuse auto, clear prob for price mpg rep78 /* */ headroom trunk weight ins mpg loc uniq= r(N_unique) su mpg, mean prgen mpg, from(`r(min)') /* */ to(`r(max)') /* */ gen(prob) n(`uniq') levels mpg loc i 1 gen marg=0 foreach level in `r(levels)'{ mfx, var(mpg) at(mpg=`level') mat A = e(Xmfx_dydx) replace marg=A[1,2] in `i' loc ++i } } tw (connected probp1 probx), /* */ xti("Mpg") ytit("Probability") /* */ name(prob, replace) nodraw tw (connected marg probx), /* */ xti("Mpg") ytit("Marginal Effect") /* */ name(marginal, replace) nodraw gr combine prob marginal ************* HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Nirina F Gesendet: Donnerstag, 17.

How about graphing the marginal effects next to that graph? nrina On Thu, Sep 17, 2009 at 12:04 PM, Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> wrote: > > <> > > The -prgen- command holds all other covariates at their mean by default, so > my code has already taken care of your concern.
