What is the difference of your example to this one - where the marginal
effects do seem to change:


*************
sysuse auto, clear
gen logprice=log(price)
gen logweight=log(weight)
reg logprice length logweight foreign
mfx compute, varlist(logweight) dydx at(mean)
mfx compute, varlist(logweight) eyex at(mean)
mfx compute, varlist(logweight) dyex at(mean)
mfx compute, varlist(logweight) eydx at(mean)
*************

Betreff: st: mfx-Elasticity for a dummy variable

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
mfx,dyex?



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
