Austin-problem solved, just like that. Thanks for the solution-Garth.

Garth,
I haven't looked at the ref you cite, but what you want is one of the
several quantities that economists refer to as marginal effects (see e.g.
the description of -margfx- and SE calcs at
http://glue.umd.edu/~gelbach/ado/margfx.pdf).
Your code fails because you have not multiplied estimated coefficients by
variables.
Try instead e.g.
logit Y X r2 r3 a2 a3
g p0=invlogit(_b[_cons]+ _b[r2]*r2+_b[r3]*r3+_b[a2]*a2+_b[a3]*a3)
g p1=invlogit(_b[_cons]+_b[X]+_b[r2]*r2+_b[r3]*r3+_b[a2]*a2+_b[a3]*a3)
but it's easier to use predict in any case:
ren X wasX
g X=0
predict pr0
replace X=1
predict pr1
drop X
ren wasX X
though you still have to make sure there are no neglected connections
between X and other variables (e.g. interactions).
To bootstrap, simply wrap it in a program:
prog dp
cap drop pr0 pr1 dp
logit Y X r2 r3 a2 a3
ren X wasX
g X=0
predict pr0
replace X=1
predict pr1
drop X
ren wasX X
g dp=pr1-pr0
mean pr0 pr1 dp
end
bs: dp
