Hello, I am using xtlogit model with an interaction term (e.g., y= b0+b1.x1+b2.x1*x1+b3.x3). I want to compute the marginal effect of 'x1'. However stata 'mfx compute, predict(pu0)' code treated 'x1' and 'x1*x1' as two separate variables (in fact they are not) and gives two marginal effect (marginal effect of 'x1', 'x1*x1'). I want to find the correct marginal effect of variable 'x1'. Is there any way to to do this in stata? Thanking in advance for your kind response! Ramesh

xtlogit y x1 c.x1#c.x1
