In this case d(y)/d(lnx) can be interpreted as the response of variable y
(in levels) given a change of 1% in the x variable.

Best,

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?

Thanks,
André
