Your code continues to work in Stata 11, though use of -adjust- is now
deprecated. There have been discussions about the claim "margins can do
everything that adjust did and more." (see -help adjust- in Stata 11
incarnation) on the list before (think The first
part of your code would be

sysuse auto, clear
qui reg price c.mpg##c.mpg weight

The equivalent -margins- call to your -adjust- code should be -margins,
at((mean) weight)- from my point of view, but how one can -generate- the
variables using -margins- that -adjust- could continues to elude me... (I do
not see a -generate- option, for a start...)

Betreff: st: Plotting graph for a cubic regression model

Dear Stata Users: 
I have a question concerning an old threat (please see below). It offers a
solution to the problem of plotting the partial effect of a predictor in a
quadratic regression model. My aim is to do the same for a cubic regression
model and the solution offered below works fine. However, since this threat
is rather old and since "adjust" seems to be out-of-use, I wonder if there
is an easier of "better" way to do it. 

Any suggestions? 

Thanks in advance

How about something like this:

. sysuse auto
(1978 Automobile Data)

. gen mpg2 = mpg^2

. qui reg price mpg mpg2 weight

. qui adjust weight, gen(predicted)

. twoway line predicted mpg, sort || scatter price mpg
