If -margins- is listed in the -help- for -stcrreg postestimation- ("Also
see" tab in the -stcrreg- help) you can.

Correct spelling is "Stata", as the list FAQ explain. Programs like SAS
and SPSS are properly capitalized because they are "acronyms"-they are
words formed from the initial letters of the original names. "Stata" is
a made-up name and the letters stand for nothing else, so only the first
letter should be capitalized:

Some statistical examples of acronyms and the original names:

SAS = Statistical Analysis System
SPSS = Statistical Package for the Social Sciences
SUDAAN = SUrvey Design And ANalysis
NCSS = Number Cruncher Statistical System

The original names for all of these no longer appear in the product literature.

Two non-statistical examples
IBM = International Business Machines (abandoned)
UNESCO = United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
