The question is unclear: With a response in log and covariates in levels,
you interpret the coefficients as semi-elasticities, see, for instance,
Baum(2006) (http://www.stata-press.com/books/imeus.html), chap. 4.3.4. Now
where do you want to take it from here?

Subject: st: Mincer wage function as a log function - how can stata
calculate the percent values
Hi, i have here the standard Mincer wage function as a log function:
Log(W) = b + cX ^2 + dX + eX + fX
Now if i want the Values of the coefficients in percent i have to
calculate by hand every value with:
100 * (exp^b - 1)
Is there a way that stata can do this after the regress command?
Thanks Boris
