```Actually, I think what you want is something slightly different, in
that you only want to compare the AME for group1 for the group1
subsample, with the AME for group2 for the group2 subsample. This can
be had by decomposing the marginal effects as discussed in the manual
entry [R] on -margins-, pg. 969-972. Which makes more sense depends on
the nature of the "e" variable.

margins, over(south) dydx(c.year) ///
at(south=(0 1)) coeflegend post
test _b[1bn._at#0bn.south]= _b[2._at#1.south]
/**************************************/
