Sandra Virgo <[email protected]> : Roughly, yes, it seems so. The dy/dx estimate you report is for a one-unit change in x, so the units of x matter, obviously. If x is a proportion, you want a 0.01 unit change instead of a one-unit change, so you divide the numbers in the output by 100, or redefine your x. The y in that expression is not really "the percentage of conceptions ending in maternity" though, but intelligent readers will not be misled by such a statement about the marginal effects.
