Erasmo, You cannot calculate marginal effects following a fixed effects logit, with or without interactions, since the fixed effects are not estimated. See for instance the following thread: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2005-10/msg00464.html Note that my -nlcom- code did not relate to the fixed effects logit but to McFadden's choice model which is equivalent computationally but very different conceptually.
