I need to do a multiple linear regression in Stata. My dependent variable is a dummy variable. We are new to Stata, and need graphs to do explanatory statistics. When we create graphs, it obviously only appears as two solid lines of data points. How do we interpret, or is there an additional command that will draw a graph which we can more clearly analyse?

Not used stata, but youd really need to be a lot more specific about what youre trying to do (can you post the original question), what the data is like and what youve done. So generally you assume a linear relationship so why is it binary, what do you mean by a dummy dependent variable, what sort of exploratory stats are you trying to do, what lines are you talking about ....

Thank you for your response, however I am looking for advice specific to stata

The dependent variable (y) is a dummy variable and hence binary (as it takes the form 1 or 0).

Trying to model a binary variable using multiple linear regression is problematic at best. Are you really trying to do this, or just looking at summary stats of the independent variables?

Id agree that youre really trying to model the probability if the dependent variable is binary. Basic multiple linear regression does not do this. It would help to see the question as well as you describing what youve covered on your (uni?) courses if you want some appropriate advice.

Thanks so much for taking the time to respond by the way!

We have no question, as we have to form our own analysis, however i am studying econometrics. We have covered slightly beyond basic MLR alongside the Woolridge textbook.

There are generally a number of ways of approaching the analysis and without some context about the previous questions its hard to really give useful advice. If you want some advice, pls provide a fair bit more info about the previous questions or have a chat with your tutor/lecturer who will know all this.

There are some summary stats for each of the examples/data sets.

As above though, you really need to be more specific to get some help or if youre having trouble getting started, ask your lecturer/tutor.

I did a quick google before turning in and I presume youre talking about one of the data sets in chapter 7 in
