Dear Maarten:
Thanks for your help. 
Just to make sure I understand exactly what you mean, is this what you propose that I do:

constraint 1 [ident=0]: sample
mlogit work ragender##hcplt_1 edu2##sample i.age##sample ident, cluster(hhidpn) constraints(1)

margins, predict(outcome(1)) dydx(edu2) over(sample)

where sample is the sample indicator, and ident is the variable that is only present if sample==0.

The typical trick for that is to estimated them all in one model and
add interactions of your group identifier with all your explanatory
variables. You can use -constraint-s to remove some explanatory
variables from some of your samples, i.e. set the effect of those
variables in those samples equal to 0.

Hope this helps,
