-mfx compute- will work after -xtlogit, fe-  with the predict(pu0) option.

The pu0 comes from -clogit- which also estimates conditional fixed-effects logit
models.

For example:

. webuse union
(NLS Women 14-24 in 1968)

. qui xtlogit union age grade south, fe i(id)

. mfx compute, predict(pu0)

Marginal effects after clogit
y  = Pr(union|fixed effect is 0) (predict, pu0)
=  .79024722

(*) dy/dx is for discrete change of dummy variable from 0 to 1

-mfx compute- will also work after -xtprobit- and -xtgee-.

Hope this helps,
Scott
