Most post-estimation commands do not know or care whether you changed
the data after estimating the model but before using the
post-estimation command. This can be useful for what-if analyses. You
estimate the model, change the variable you want to change in your
data (possibly precede it with -preserve-) so it corresponds to your
scenario, and use for example -predict- to see what happens.
Alternatively, I guess you can implement many scenarios with clever
use of -margins- without changing the data.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
