Subject   st: Marginal effect at each category of dependent variable after ologit using margins command

Dear Statalisters,

I am using Stata, version 11.2 on Mac. I am estimating the following
ordered logit

ologit test_math_score child_female age icompl_grade logmpc urban
father_edu mother_edu  scstobs other_caste muslim num_mixedgrade_s

After that, I am interested in the marginal effect of the explanatory
variables on the probability of each category of the dependent
variable test_math_score ( It has 4 categories).

As instructed in Cameron and Trivedi ( Microeconometrics using Stata),
I do the following:

mfx, predict (outcome(1))

This gives me the marginal effect of the explanatory variables on the
probability of test_math_score =1

But how do I do the same thing using the margins command?

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Best

Urmi Bhattacharya
