Note that the default prediction after -xtlogit, re- is the linear
prediction, as seen in -help xtlogit postestimation-. For -logit-, it is the
probability. I guess this is the source of the confusion: -margins- uses the
default -predict- option after the respective estimation command, unless
instructed otherwise...

Betreff: st: marginal effects after xtlogit

Dear list:

I just found that after using xtlogit (re), the command "margins, dydx(*)"
produce identical average marginal effects as the estimated coefficents.
This is for both discrete and continuous explanatory variables. Using the
same command following logit seems OK. Is this some kind of error on stat's

Thank you for any response.
