Dear Statalist users,

I would like to calculate some predicted probabilities after fitting a
multinomial logit model (asclogit). But, the twist is that I would
like to calculate these fitted values for a given level of one of the
independent variables. Namely, I would like to set one of the Xs to
zero when computing the predicted probability (but not in the
estimation).
What would be the best way of going about this? Would it make sense to
do it in 2 steps? In the first step use  "predict xb" and in the
second step remove the component of xb that I'm not interested and
calculate the probability using "gen" and the logit formula?
Or is there a better way?

I am going to slightly tweak my earlier advice. Assuming you only want in-sample predictions,

webuse sysdsn1, clear
clonevar xmale = male
mlogit insure age i.xmale nonwhite i.site
predict p1 p2 p3 if e(sample)
replace xmale = 0 if !missing(xmale)
predict pp1 pp2 pp3 if e(sample)
