Dear list,

I have a query about the use of the prvalue command after multinomial regression.


My question concerns the use of dummy-variables within prvalue. As I only wish to control for certain (dummy)variables (sex, place of birth, etc.) and didn’t wanted to produce separate estimations for each value (e.g. sex=0, sex=1), I was using the mean option for the dummy variables just as for metric variables (e.g. age). 

Does that make sense? How can I interpret the estimated probabilities then? Can I say that these probabilities apply for a group which has an underlying structure concerning sex, place of birth etc. just like the sample?
 

Thanks for your help,
Jochen
