Thank you very much Martin for your help. It worked so well. I have a few questions: is it possible also to graph the marginal effects of just the mpg at each value of mpg. I know if you calculate . mfx after . prob for price mpg rep78 headroom trunk weight then you get the marg. effects at the mean value but I would like the marginal effects at each value of mpg but keeping the other variables at their mean. I am aware of the -at- option but it's just difficult to graph it. Also, How would I change the name of the xaxis and yaxis of the previous graph? Thank you very much, Nrina On Thu, Sep 17, 2009 at 8:00 AM, Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> wrote: > > <> > > For these purposes, Scott Long`s -findit spost- comes in handy.
