Hi Phil, you understood the model correctly and many thanks for the hints. Michael Philip Ender schrieb:

"Michael.Stuetzer" <Michael.Stuetzer@uni-jena.de> had a question on computing predicted probabilities from -xtmelogit-. In particular, he had a question on how to handle an interaction term in the model. First off, the method he selected from the ATS Stat Consulting FAQ page, http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/faq/xtmelogit_prob.htm is meant to produce predicted probabilities that include both fixed and random effects. If the predicted probabilities using just the fixed portion of the model are acceptable then the process is much easier using -margins- with the predict(mu fixedonly). If I understand things correctly, the variable, int_ownmge_bipwachstum, is the interaction of the categorical variable, Zownmge, and the continuous variable, Zbipwachstum_l1t5. To get the correct probabilities the interaction term needs to change when Zownmge changes. When Zownmge equals zero the interaction should also equal zero. When Zownmge equals one the interaction value equals Zbipwachstum_l1t5. So hopefully I understand your model correctly. Phil
