Hello,I'm using the gologit2 generalized logistic regression/ partialproportional odds model for ordinal dependent variables. Thedependent variable describes firm size and is a categorical variablewith three groups, small, medium and large. Independent variablesare three dummies that describe categorical firm types + somecontrol variables.I used margeff to get the average marginal effect coefficients (seeoutput below), but i'm having difficulties in understanding how Icould get the predicted probabilities for the three dummies in aconvenient way. For mlogit the 'margins' command gives theprobabilities directly, so is there some way to obtain them withgologit2 or must I use the predict command and calculate theprobabilities by hand for each dummy?If I use predict, how can I get the base probability level that thethree coefficients below are compared to? What about if I usemarginal effects at mean instead of average marginal effects?Thank you for your assistance in advance!
