Caroline B. Theoharides <cbtheo@gmail.com>: There are several ways to do this depending on what kind of "marginal effects" you want, and the syntax is given by -help nlogit postestimation-. Perhaps the most natural approach is to simply replace the value of kids with each of the possible values at which you want to calculate predictions (i.e. each of your counterfactuals) and predict probabilities. This uses the empirical distribution of each choice's attributes, but I believe -spost- uses means of the estimation sample instead (or would if it supported -nlogit-). The two approaches are illustrated below. The second approach assumes every restaurant has the same (mean) cost, distance, and rating, which is why I say the first approach is more natural; others may disagree with that assessment. The calculation of marginal effects will depend on your counterfactuals. clear all webuse restaurant nlogitgen type=restaurant(fast: 1 | 2, family: 3 | 4 | 5, fancy:6 | 7) nlogit ch cost d ra||type:income kids,base(family)||re:,noconst case(f) preserve qui forv i=0/7 { replace kids=`i' predict p`i'_*, pr forv r=1/7 { su p`i'_2 if re==`r', meanonly loc k`i'r`r'=r(mean) } } loc l forv r=1/7 { forv k=0/7 { loc l `l' `k`k'r`r'' `=`r'.`k'' } } loc o "recast(spike) yti(Prob) xti(Rest) yla(0(.1).5) xla(" forv r=1/7 { loc o `"`o' `r'.4 "`:label (re) `r''" "' } loc o `"`o', angle(90))"' tw scatteri `l', `o' name(e, replace) bys type rest: su p*_2 restore foreach v in cost d ra income { su `v', meanonly loc `v'=r(mean) } preserve collapse ch cost d ra income kids fam, by(type rest) foreach v in cost d ra income { qui replace `v'=``v'' } expand 8 bys type rest: replace kids=_n-1 bys type rest: replace fa=_n predict p*, pr loc l2 forv r=1/7 { forv k=0/7 { su p2 if rest==`r' & kids==`k', meanonly loc l2 `l2' `r(mean)' `=`r'.`k'' } } tw scatteri `l2', `o' name(m, replace) sort kids type rest li type rest kids p2, noo sepby(kids) restore gr combine e m, ycommon nocopies ti(Pr Choice by Number of Kids) On Fri, Jun 27, 2008 at 9:22 AM, Caroline B.
