-mfx compute- will compute the marginal effects after -xtlogit, fe-  with the
predict(pu0) option.  The pu0 comes from -clogit- which also estimates
conditional fixed-effects logit
models.

I am not sure why "no effect" is reported when using the -predict(p)- option.

. webuse union
(NLS Women 14-24 in 1968)

. qui xtlogit union age grade south year, fe i(id)

. mfx compute, predict(pu0) nose

Marginal effects after clogit
y  = Pr(union|fixed effect is 0) (predict, pu0)
=  .16861097

Hope this helps,
