Dear all,

when using the -mfx- command after a multinomial logit, one has the possibility to compute elasticities in the form of d(y)/d(lnx) with the "dyex" option.
I was wondering how such an elasticity is called... d(lny)/d(x) is called a semi-elasicity, but what about d(y)/d(lnx)? and how can it be interpreted?
