Dear All

I am trying to estimate elasticity for a dummy explanatory variable in
the following model

ln(y) = a + b ln(x) + T + D Z

I am interested in calculating the elasticity for T a dummy variable
for a "treatment". What is the formula in stata? Is it mfx,dy/dx or

I have done mfx,dyex and the result still remains the coefficient for
T. Could it be that simple? Or there is another way ?

Kindly advise
