# Re: st: marginsplot after xtmixed with square term

```Stata does not know that repl2 is the square of repl.

Try:

webuse acmemanuf
lowess y repl, by(pressure)
//gen repl2=repl^2
gen id=.
replace id=temp if pressure==1
replace id=temp+3 if pressure==2
replace pressure=0 if pressure==1
replace pressure=1 if pressure==2
xtmixed y  i.pressure c.repl##c.repl##i.pressure  || id: repl,
cov(uns) res(ind) mle variance
margins pressure, at(repl=(1(1)10))
marginsplot
