# Re: st: predicted marginal effects for sample

 From john sanders To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject Re: st: predicted marginal effects for sample Date Sun, 4 Dec 2011 21:18:07 -0500

```Thank you Steve,

Unfortunately, I was not able to find a solution in the help file or
manual, which is why I am asking here.

I simply want to generate a variable which contains the predicted
marginal effect of model.

For the linear prediction, I would simply type:
reg demand c.distance##c.price##c.price
predict demand_hat, xb

I want to do something similar for the marginal effect of price:
reg demand c.distance##c.price##c.price
margins , dydx(price)

To calculate the predictive margins, I could simply generate a new variable:
gen demand_change=distance*_b[c.distance#c.price]+2*price*_b[c.price#c.price]+2*distance*price*_b[c.distance#c.price#c.price]

I was simply wondering if margins had this automated.
