Dear Statalisters:

I use -estout- (downloadable from ssc) after mfx. Here are my command lines.

xi: logit ar_english size2 int_sales listing concent roa_if_cumul_w  growth_op3 leverage_if tongue_importance3_bis_sqrt ln_mktcap_wb if year==2003 & leverage_if<1.5 & growth_op3<7, robust

estimates store raw, title(Basic model - 2003)

mfx

estimates store mfx, title(Marginal effects)

estout raw mfx using Table7_mfx, replace cells ("b(fmt(%9.3f) label(Coefficients)) t(pattern(0 1) fmt(%9.3f) label(z)) p(pattern(0 1) fmt(%9.3f)) Xmfx_X(pattern(0 1))") margin legend label  varlabels(_cons Constant) type

As you can see from the estout line, I get the coefficients b for the raw model, and the coefficients b, z, p-value and X for the marginal effects. I am fully satisfied with the content of the output. However, there is a minor detail which I would like to improve. For the raw model, the unique column is entitled "coefficients" and this is fine. However, for the marginal effects, I would prefer to entitle the first column (second column in the output) "dy/dx" rather than "coefficients". Is it possible with the estout syntax?

I provide below the output, but I am not sure it is readable. 

	Basic model - 2003	Marginal effects			
	Coefficients	Coefficients	z	p	Xmfx_X
