I want to calculate the marginal effects for all

gen dydx = _b[mpg]+2*_b[ c.mpg#c.mpg]*mpg

I thought I would get the same using:

margins, dydx(mpg) at((asobserved) mpg)

but I only get a single value at the mean of mpg.

How can I get the marginal effect at each observation from
-margins- (if at all)?
That marginal effect only depends on the value of mpg, so
you can get a complete list of all marginal effects by typing:

margins, dydx(mpg) over(mpg)

There is no -generate- or -replace- option in -margins, so there
is no easy way to turn this into a variable (it is possible, but
your manual computations are just easier).

Hope this helps,

Thanks. But it does not seem to allow negative values for the variable that is included in -over-. Is there any way around this?
