I run a simple model: y = x1 + x2. Both y and x1 are dummy variables and
they are highly positively correlated. x2 is a continuous variable. I use
command mfx, eyex to estimate the elasticity of x2. I tried both Probit and
OLS. However, the elasticities from them are much different. The one from
Probit is -1.27 and the one from OLS is -0.27. I wonder what might be the

Thanks in advance for your help.
