Hi Austin. Thanks for your reply. I would like to smooth Y only... I am estimating a price effect for each household, and would like to smooth it across income distribution. X,Z,K are different components of the price effect (none of them are income). I can assume covariances as zero... 

My main question is how use lpoly on a variable that is estimated and has associated standard errors. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Across what values of what variable are you smoothing? X? Z? Both?
Something else?
I can't see how you could use the SEs on coefs unless you also have
the covariances.
