Although it is possible to calculate the slope of the probitfunction for each individual (and that is what is going on in thecalculation of average marginal effects) and transform it to anindividual-level marginal effect, it is not possible to compute aninterval estimate from a sample of size 1: that is, you will not beable to consider the precision of the values. If you calculate anAME from a number of observations, you can.Kit
