postrcspline -- Post-estimation commands for models using restricted cubic spline.


The postrcspline package consists of programs that can help with the interpretation of a model that uses a restricted cubic spline as one of the explanatory variables. The restricted cubic spline must be genereated by mkspline2. These postrcspline programs are:

adjustrcspline which displays the adjusted predictions after using a restricted cubic spline. mfxrcspline which displays the marginal effect of a restricted cubic spline mkspline2 creates restricted cubic splines in exactly the same way as mkspline, but leaves information behind that is used by adjustrcspline and mfxrcspline.

postrcspline is not an official Stata command. It is a free contribution to the research community, like a paper. Please cite it as such.
