The local polynomial suffers from a similar problem, there you will have to choose the bandwidth, which will similarly influence the resulting curve. One tool you can use to help you choose the degree is the -compare- option within -fracpoly-. > 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 You can't do it with local polynomial curves. Another option you could look at is -mvrs-, which appeared in the Stata Journal, so you'll have to install it by typing -findit mvrs- and following the instructions in the resulting window. The basic philosophy is similar to -fracpoly-, but it uses splines instead of fractional polynomials.
