Quantile regression via -qreg- makes sense, though then you are
modeling how conditional quantiles change as a fn of predictors, not
the conditional mean.  If you want to model the conditional mean,
consider a GLM (-help glm-), which offers one way to model fractional
outcomes via the fractional logit; see e.g.
and see also -locpr- on SSC for an alternative conditional mean model
as a fn of one predictor.
