Use -adjust- with the -ci- option. The fitted value of y is not a "marginal effect"; for -regress- or (-svy: regress-) the default marginal effects are the regression coefficients.

Dear all,
I've been running some regression models using -svy- and estimating
its marginal effect using -mfx- (I use Stata 10.1).
I wonder how can I get the 95% CI for the marginal effects (y)?

The output for regression and its marginal effect are as follows:
