Thank you Richard,
this seems to be the solution. Anyway, is it possible to check whether
the results obtained for p1 p2 p3 are the ones I need (male
coefficients*female individual characteristics)?
Male coefs are in the stata output, whilst female characteristics in
my dataset. Should I compute the product between the coefs in the
output and the average individual characteristics of female?

Thanks to you all
chiara
