st: RE: Marginal effects in logit of unbalanced panel, re
Take a look at [R] mfx or -help mfx-. From the help file:
"Exactly what mfx can calculate is determined by the previous estimation
command and the predict(predict_option) option."
The default predict_option for -xtlogit- is the linear prediction. I think
