Please excuse me that this is not exactly a question about Stata, but I
think professionals here can help.
For a regression equation: X/Y = a + bZ + cK + error where X, Y, Z and K
are variables. Given estimates of the coefficients b and c, what is the
formula for the marginal effect of Z on X ie. dX/dZ, and the formula for the
elasticity of X with respect to Z.
I know how to get the elasticity when the Dependent is a variable in level,
but do not know how when the dependent is a ratio.
Your information on the formula or reference materials are much appreciated.
Thank you very much for your precious time.
