Re: st: Interactions and factor variables with ivregress |

Statalisters, I've run into the same problem as below, only I'm using -ivreg2-. Specifically, I'm looking for a way to do something like the -margins- command after -ivreg2-. It seems that -ivreg2- doesn't yet support factor variables. Is there another way to get the results like those from -margins- after using -ivreg2- with an endogenous interaction?
