Re: st: marginal effect of the interaction term in the probit model using margins command |

Maarten thanks a lot for your help. I calculated the marginal effect on the interaction term using the inteff command. My understanding is that the output reports the mean interaction effect i.e. it reports the interaction effect when all variables are held at the mean. When I report the marginal effects in the paper, I report them at certain values of the variables that donot coincide with the mean. So for consistency can I get the interaction effect in the output at the same values at which I report the marginal effects? Does the inteff command have an at option like at in the margins command? If not then would you recommend that I report the marginal effects at the mean vlues along with the interaction effect?
