Re: st: predict

Dear Richard and you All,
I simply want the coefficients (of my covariates) which allow me to
get the predicted outcome of each equation of my MNL.

example: I get a predicted probability (say to move from employment to
unemployment) of 0.4:
what is the contribution (numerical) of each covariate I included in
my equation (suc as sex, individual age, etc.). Is it given by the
exponential of the coef I find in the STATA output? therefore by
summing/subtracting the exp of each coef I get my predicted of 0.4
(but there is also a standard error)

many thanks
