*------------------ begin example ------------------
sysuse auto, clear
recode rep78 1/2=3
replace weight = (weight -3000) / 2000
replace price = (price - 6000) / 1000

mlogit rep78 c.price##i.foreign weight, rrr
est store base

// OR of foreign for 1 unit increase in price
lincom _b[4:1.foreign] + _b[4:1.foreign#c.price], rrr

// reproduce those estimates with -mlogit-
// it is the main effect of foreign
gen price1 = price - 1
mlogit rep78 c.price1##i.foreign weight, rrr

// OR of foreign for 2 unit increase in price
lincom _b[4:1.foreign] + 2*_b[4:1.foreign#c.price], rrr
di 27.88998 *  1.788271^2 // same result as lincom 89.189734

// reproduce those estimates with -mlogit-
// it is the main effect of foreign
gen price2 = price - 2
mlogit rep78 c.price2##i.foreign weight, rrr
*------------------- end example -------------------
