If you want to be strict, you would have to average over these as well, and that has not been implemented (yet). You use a hybrid solution, where you fix the random effects at the mean (0) and average over the remaining variables. You can do so by typing: margins, predict(pu0) dydx(*) A more elegant solution is to forget about probit and xtprobit and move to logit and xtlogit. After that you can just interpret the odds ratios, which are independent of the other variables and thus don't need such hybrid solutions.
