# st: Margins & margins plot after quantile regression

 From Fred Wolfe To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject st: Margins & margins plot after quantile regression Date Fri, 20 Jan 2012 05:11:39 -0600

```Can someone tell me how to get the marginal effects after the
following command for all of the quantiles.

. sqreg dfness age gender,q(.25 .50 .75 .95)
(fitting base model)
(bootstrapping ....................)

Simultaneous quantile regression                     Number of obs =      2488
bootstrap(20) SEs                                  .25 Pseudo R2 =    0.0386
.50 Pseudo R2 =    0.0731
.75 Pseudo R2 =    0.0908
.95 Pseudo R2 =    0.1248

This is apparently margins for q50. I would like margins for all of
the quantiles, with an ultimate goal of using margins plot.

Thanks.
