i have to use these means, together with the betas of a reg. More precisely, b are betas by occupation, whilst x are the mean of the variables in my dataset. To compute the total gender wage gap i have to compute this for each occupation: pf (xm-xf)bm + xmbm(pm-pf)+pfxf(bm-bf)+xmbm(pf -pm) m and f is for male and female. P are the predicted probability from a mlogit.b as said and asked yesterday are coef from wage reg. Thanks On 11/04/2012, Maarten Buis <maartenlbuis@gmail.com> wrote: > Haven't we been there before?
