Re: st: marginal effects from probit with baseline using estout

```I think I hacked something together that works reasonably well:

#delimit;
set more off;
clear all;
webuse union, clear;
tabstat union , by(year);
probit union ib(80).year, robust;
di normal(_b[_cons]);

/* Get the baseline with CI (round to 3 digits) */
estadd margins, at((zero) _continuous (base) _factor);
matrix define M = e(margins_table);
"[`=round(M[rownumb(M,"ll"),1],0.001)',`=round(M[rownumb(M,"ul"),1],0.001)']";

/* Get the AMEs */
estpost margins, dydx(year);

/* LaTeX Table */
esttab using AME.tex,
cell(b(fmt(3) star) ci(fmt(3)par))
stats(bl blci N, fmt(%12.0fc) label("Baseline" " " "Obs"))
drop(80b.year)
mtitle("AME & 95% CI")
collabels(none)
title("AME")
replace;

cat AME.tex;
