Thank you very much, it helps a lot.

However, there is a problem now:

-mfx- predicts that:

variable |      dy/dx    Std. Err.     z    P>|z|  [    95% C.I.   ]      X
uba|        -3.05144     1.55749   -1.96   0.050  6.10406  .001175   .004839

And the effect of uba on dependent variable exceeds unit if one std. dev. Of uba changes, certirus paribus?

Xiaoqiang Cheng:
no, if you use -glm- to estimate a fractional logit the effect should
be interpreted in pretty much the same way as logit results, i.e. the
coefficents are the effects of the explanatory variables on the
"logit-transformed" proportions. You can get the effects on the
proportion using -mfx, predict(mu)-. I've given a presentation on
analysing proportions with Stata at the last London Stata User's
meeting. You can get the slides from and my website .
