Re: st: Plotting a Local Polynomial Regression with CIs Accounting for Clustering |

Thanks for your help. And sorry for one more email. I've been playing around with the fracpoly graphs for a couple days now. Compared to the local polynomial regression lines, they do not look quite right. The main thing is that the picture will depend often depend fairly strongly on the number of degrees for the fractional polynomial. If you specify a number too small, the graph will appear oversmoothed. If you specify a number of degrees too large, then the 95% CIs will often get very large. fracpoly reg y x, cluster(id) degree(2) fracplot, msymbol(none) addplot((function y=x)) fracpoly reg y x, cluster(id) degree(6) fracplot, msymbol(none) addplot((function y=x)) In the toy data above this is not so bad, but it is more of an issue with the real data. I realize that choosing the degrees is a necesary choice. It seems though that lpoly (local polynomial) regression produces a graph for my data that seems more reasonable. Thus, though I said I was flexible with respect to which form of nonparametric regression is used, I was wondering if there might be a way to possibly return back to local polynomial regression or perhaps another form of nonparametric regression (besides fracpoly) that will allow me to plot 95% CIs accounting for clustering, e.g. something like twoway (lpolyci y x, cluster(id)) (line x x) Thanks a lot.
