Yes, if you type -help mfx- it tells you that: "By default, mfx calculates the marginal effects or elasticities at the means of the independent variables by using the default prediction option associated with the previous estimation command." If you type -help xtnbreg postestimation- it tells you that the linear predictor is the default for -predict- after -xtnbreg-. This means that the marginal effect -mfx- computes is just the same as the output of -xtnbreg-. If you want to interpret incidence rate ratios you don't have to use -mfx-, you can just use -xtnbreg- with the -irr- option. See: -help xtnbreg-. > If I do get the correct mfx output, how do I compute predicted Y? Do > I have compute y = exp(XB) where B stores marginal effects separately > in excel ? See -help xtnbreg postestimation- and look at the -predict- section. Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
