I know how to interpret Poisson estimated coefficients as elasticities (or rather, to convert it into elasticities), but I want to interpret the marginal effect of a change in the regressor on the count variable itself. But, interpretation of Poisson coefficients isn't straightforward. Is there a post-estimation command, similar to the -mfx- commands for creating elasticities, that will generate easy to intepret coefficients of the marginal effect of a change in the regressors on the count regressand? *
