You'd be surprised to know that the answer to this question is found in the
help file for -margins- and -marginsplot-

If I understand correctly, marginsplot can only be used for continuous
variables? Or is it only the outcome of interest needs to be continuous but
the covariates maybe categorical (and interactions terms specified between
categorical variables)?

Consider too Patrick Royston's new -mcp- (aka -marginscontplot-)
command described in the latest issue of the Stata journal and
available via -findit-. I find that it can save a few steps over
- -margins-, and that it can do some things I am not sure how to do
otherwise. The article came out just as i was discussing such issues
in class so I quickly put together a handout with some highlights:
