LOCPR: Stata module for semi-parametric estimation

Austin Nichols

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: locpr semi-parametrically estimates a probability or proportion as a function of one other variable and graphs the result. Specifically, it estimates a local linear regression using lpoly and approximates the endpoints of the confidence interval via a logit transformation. The estimates are computed at ninety-nine percentiles of the regressor and graphed. The logit option offers a direct comparison to parametric logistic regression.
