Use -margins, expression()- as in this simple example: *----------------------------------------------------------------- webuse nlswork, clear xtset idcode year generate age2 = age^2 generate ttl_exp2 = ttl_exp^2 generate tenure2 = tenure^2 generate byte black = (race==2) xtreg ln_w L.ln_w age ttl_exp L.ttl_exp c.ttl_exp#i.collgrad , fe margins, expression(_b[ttl_exp]*collgrad) // expression of your choice *----------------------------------------------------------------- Note that "collgrad" is a panel invariant variable (Z_i) in this case.
