I am trying to be sure I am interpreting the marginal effects on a
multinomial logit correctly.  I believe that the marginal effect signals a
percentage point movement.  For example, if the marginal effect on a 0/1
variable is .03 then the change in the variable from 0 to 1 would signify a
3 percentage point increase.  Am I correct?  Would this change for a
continous independent variable?  

Thanks,
Danny
