I.Roland and Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de>: I don't see an easy solution--for each obs, the full interaction effect is the cross-partial derivative of the expected value of y (http://www.stata-journal.com/sjpdf.html?articlenum=st0063, p.155) which in -xtprobit- depends on the (unobserved) random effect (http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?xtprobit+postestimation shows you can get the probability of a positive outcome, assuming that the random effect for that observation's panel is zero, but not an estimated random effect). You could integrate over simulated random effects, I suppose... averaging not only over obs in the sample but across many possible draws of REs for each obs (using estimated sigma_u and rho to simulate REs; see http://www.stata-journal.com/sj6-2.html for some helpful technique). SEs on these "full interaction effects" would be a pain then--perhaps you can treat the REs as missing data, and do multiple imputation from the distribution given by estimated sigma_u and rho, then use Rubin's formulas to calculate SEs. No doubt there is a better strategy, but it is not immediately obvious to me...
