Has anyone written a general program to calculate and display the estimated slope and associated error of Y on x1 at various values of x2, where Y = b0 + b1x1 + b2x2 + b3x1x2

Last fall Scott Merryman posted a nice program (which I copy in, below) which takes care of this at the mean of x2. Thanks, Scott!, We could also be interested in doing it for other values.

- Scott Merryman's program to calculate the marginal effects and the variance of interaction terms -

program marginalx, rclass

version 8.1

syntax , x(varname) y(varname) xy(varname)

sum `y' if e(sample), meanonly

local marginal = _b[`x'] + _b[`xy']*r(mean)

matrix A = e(V)

matrix B1 = A["`x'" , "`x'"]

local var_b1 = B1[1,1]

matrix B2 = A["`xy'" , "`xy'"]

local var_b2 = B2[1,1]

matrix B3 = A["`x'" , "`xy'"]

local covar_b1b2 = B3[1,1]

local variance = `var_b1' + (r(mean)^2)*`var_b2' + 2*r(mean)*`covar_b1b2'

dis ""

disp in gr "Marginal effect of `x' at the mean of `y' = " `marginal'

disp in gr "Variance of marginal effect of `x' at the mean of `y' = " `variance'

return scalar margx = `marginal'

return scalar var_margx = `variance'

end
