Dear Maarten,

Yes, my depended variable y is in log (0's are still
0), and explanatory  
variables are in log also.
So, parameter estimates can be already interpreted as
elacticities.

I need to know elasticity of the latent and observed
variable.

So by applying:
mfx, eyex
mfx, predict(e(2020,.)) eyex
I take log twice?

And correct approach would be to use dydx?

Is it correct?


Kind regards,
Olga
