FW: st: mfx after xtnbreg and how to compute predicted Y |

Thanks for pointing this out. I am still learning to use statistical options in Stata and the help menu is not too straightforward for me. Will appreciate any help to my questions about IRR and Predict with xtnbreg. Two follow up questions: 1) to calculate the marginal effect for a two-way interaction term. Do I run IRR option and take the IRR coefficients to compute the effect, equivalent to (β3 + β4 x2) as follow? Say, E[y | x] = exp(β1 + β2 x2 + β3 x3 + β4 x2 x3 ) Then the proportionate change in the conditional mean due to a one-unit change in x3 equals (β3 + β4 x2). 2) I need to compute Y2(X1 | other_X_at_mean_value) Y1(X1+1std_dev | other_X_at_mean_value) calculate Y2-Y1. How do I use the options predict to have the values X1 and X1 + 1 std dev ? Cheers, Pek --- Pek-Hooi Soh <phsoh22@gmail.com> wrote: > I estimated the full model by xtnbreg and ran mfx.

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.
