Typically, my response to the reviewer would be something like: "We agree with the reviewer that a substantive interpretation of the parameters would improve the article. We have chosen to do so in the form of rate ratios rather than marginal effects as that way we avoid the problem that correct marginal effects of interaction terms tend to be so variable across individuals that a one number summary, like a mean marginal effect, is hard to justify (Ai and Norton 2003)." Hope this helps, Maarten Ai, C., and E. Norton. 2003. Interaction terms in logit and probit models. Economics Letters 80: 123–129 -------------------------- Maarten L.
