You already have the predicted probabilities, that is what you got when you typed -predict p_spline-. The analytic representation is not so easy, so that I cannot meaningfully start trying to type it here in plain text. I would just look at the methods and formulas section of the manual entry on -mkspline-(*). Alternatively I often like linear splines as a good compromise between interpretability and flexibility of the curve. Hope this helps, Maarten (*) Note however that when you are using Stata 10, the manual entry contains a typo in the formula. I believe a minus sign on the wrong side of one of the brackets.
