The line that ends
_b[x1*x2]*x1*x2_bar
should probably end
_b[x1x2]*x*x2_bar
and note legal variable names should be used inside brackets...
but probably the model should be
y=a.x1+b.x1^2+c.x2+d.x1*x2+e.x1^2*x2+r
i.e. it's a bit odd for x2 to be interacted with only one of the x1
terms, though it may or may not make a big difference for
predictions...
clear all
sysuse nlsw88
ren wage y
ren tenure x1
ren grade x2
g x1x2=x1*x2
g x1s=x1^2
g x1sx2=x1s*x2
reg y x1 x2 x1x2 x1s
su x2 if e(sample), meanonly
loc m=r(mean)
loc f "_b[_cons]+_b[x1]*x+_b[x1s]*x^2+"
loc f "`f'_b[x2]*`m'+_b[x1x2]*x*`m'"
su x1 if e(sample), meanonly
loc r2=r(max)
loc r1=r(min)
sc y x1,mc(gs12)||function `f', ra(`r1' `r2') clp(l) name(a)
reg y x1 x2 x1x2 x1s x1sx2
su x2 if e(sample), meanonly
loc f "_b[_cons]+_b[x1]*x+_b[x1s]*x^2+"
loc f "`f'_b[x2]*`m'+_b[x1x2]*x*`m'+_b[x1sx2]*x^2*`m'"
su x1 if e(sample), meanonly
loc r2=r(max)
loc r1=r(min)
sc y x1,mc(gs12)||function `f', ra(`r1' `r2') clp(l) name(b)
It's easier to -preserve-, -replace- x2 with its mean, and -predict-
and -graph- btw.
