st: Elasticity after xtprobit |

Date |

Hi, I need to calculate the elasticity after using xtprobit (RE probit). If I use "mfx compute, eyex", it yields an error. So I tried "mfx compute, predict (pu0) eyex" and it yielded some output. Is this the correct way of computing the elasticity? Also, can I get that elasticity from the marginal effects table by multiplying the marginal effect for each variable by the mean of the variable and dividing by the overall probability that y=1? In other words, is the elasticity=(d(Pr(y=1))/dx)*(xbar/avgPr(y=1))? I've tried doing it, and while the numbers are close, they're not exactly identical, so just wanted to be certain that that is how it would be computed.
