All,

I am wondering how the exp(b) or e^b is calculated when using the listcoef
command, after the logit command. I am asking because my "by hand"
calculations are not matching the ones provided by Stata 8.
Works for me. -logit-, with the -or- option, produces odds ratios that are identical to the e^b produced by listcoef. Perhaps you could give an example of what you mean? -listcoef- can also give you lots of other stuff, e.g. it will standardize the x's and give you e^bStdX - is that what you are looking at perhaps?

If in doubt about what the columns of -listcoef- are telling you, add the -help- option, e.g.

listcoef, help
