st: computing average partial effect in nonlinear models using forecasted distribution of x-variables |

Dear Statalisters, I am trying to get at the magnitude of a change in Pr(y=1|x) by replacing each explanatory variable with its sample average, save for my variable of interest, which I was hoping to use a future projected distribution (I'm trying to see how this change in distribution of this certain binary independent variable changes the probability of y=1). I had no problem doing this with linear regressions (replace all variables with its sample mean, except use projected distribution for my variable of interest, do a linear prediction, note the difference). However, when I try to carry out the same procedure in a logit regression, I am running into problems. I was under the impression that, if I were to replace ALL of my independent variables with its sample mean and then run -predict-, I should get the same predicted y value as if I were to just run a normal regression without replacing my x-var with its sample mean. Am I wrong? I hope I am making myself clear.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
