Richard,

I this what you are after?  (it's a cover-up kludge, although it avoids the
Graph Editor; it would be nice if marginsplot at least had an option to
suppress the output for the reference categories.)

webuse nhanes2f, clear

margins, dydx(black female) at(age=(20 30 40 50 60 70)) vsquish

Pr(diabetes) for females")  rows(2))


best wishes to all for 2012.

Subject: st: marginsplot is acting differently

-marginsplot- seems to be acting differently than it was a few months ago,
and the change is not for the better. Here is my code:

webuse nhanes2f, clear
logit diabetes i.black i.female age, nolog margins, dydx(black female)
at(age=(20 30 40 50 60 70)) vsquish marginsplot, noci

When I ran this a few months ago, I got a line for 1.black and 1.female,
which is what I want. But, when I run it now, I also get lines for 0b.black
and 0b.female. The latter are worthless because they are simply the same as
the X axis, i.e. the effects are always 0.

I am guessing this is some sort of bug and if so I hope it will be fixed
soon. But in the meantime, does anybody know an easy way to get only the two
lines that I want? I can go into the graph editor and hide things but that
is a pain.

I have a feeling this isn't the best time to ask a question, but I'll keep
my fingers crossed that somebody is working late before taking some richly
deserved time off for the New Year!
