Katharina-

When you give vague references, you effectively ask that we spend time figuring out exactly what the references are. If the documents are long, you are also asking us to search them for the pages that pertain to your topic. I find this inconsiderate. It is also self- defeating, because it discourages responses. Please provide precise references, with page or section numbers, as requested in the Statalist FAQ, Section 3.4: http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/ statalist.html#advice.

Dear Statalisters,
I have estimated a competing risks model in discrete time, following the approach by Allison (82)/Jenkins(95), i.e. estimating a "multinomial logit" model applied to reorganised data. I would like to interpret some of the regressors in more detail. Does it make any sense to calculate predicted probabilities - for example for a reference person and for a person who differs in just one characteristic? Can I interpret these predicted probabilities in the same way as in a "normal" multinomial logit model?
I would be really glad for any help.....
Thanks in advance!
Katharina
