Hi Glenn,

For the marginal effects -asclogit- followed by -estat mfx- should do
the trick, as in:

webuse choice
asclogit choice dealer, casevars(sex income) case(id) alternatives(car)
estat mfx

See also this tread
<> for a
manual approach to doing the same thing using -clogit-.

I hope this helps.
