Scott:
You can use -mfx- after poisson. Also have a look at Scott Longs -prchange- command which is part of the -spost- package. -findit spost- will help you retrieve and install that package.

Subject: st: post-estimation commands for Poisson

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?
