Dear Statalist members,

I am using the ado-file by Lokshin/Sajaia 2004 called movestay (Stata Journal 4, No. 3) to estimate an endogenous switching regression. After estimation, I want to use the margins command to calculate the marginal effects in the outcome equations (conditional on being observed in that equation) Unfortunately, I get an error message saying " missing predicted values encountered within the estimation sample r(322)". It seems to me that this is a bug.

Here is my code:

movestay (y $a), select(var1 $a $s) cluster(idnum)

** output omitted **

margins, dydx($a) atmeans predict(yc1_1)

Warning: cannot perform check for estimable functions.
missing predicted values encountered within the estimation sample
r(322);

Does anybody have an idea what the problem might be?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.


Jens Stephani
