Re: st: poisson regress probabilities

```Wolney Conde <wolneyconde@gmail.com> :
ps.
You might or might not find this kind of comparison useful:

sysuse auto, clear
qui reg foreign mpg, r
predict p1
la var p1 "Linear Prob Model"
qui logit foreign mpg, r
predict p2
la var p2 "Logit Model"
qui poisson foreign mpg, r
predict p3
la var p3 "Poisson Model"
locpr foreign mpg, plot(||sc p1 p2 p3 mpg)

(-locpr- is on SSC)
