margins helps, thanks!Do you know, if there is a possibility toestimate AMEs properly with the margins commandif more than one dummy belong to the samevariable (e.g. three levels of education)?With the margeff command this would be the option "dummies()"

Use factor variable notation in the estimation command, e.g. mlogit y i.educ Do NOT create the dummies yourself. For an overview of margins and Patric Royston's mcp command, see http://www3.nd.edu/~rwilliam/xsoc73994/Margins01.pptx http://www3.nd.edu/~rwilliam/xsoc73994/Margins03.pdf

That makes me wonder if there is something weird about the data or the model, e.g. does one category only have 3 cases? But, if it is a problem with margeff, maybe switching to margins will fix it. Consider (at least for exploratory purposes) estimating the marginal effects at the means (MEMs) rather than the AMEs. This should be far less computationally intensive. If problems persist, that again makes me wonder about the data or model. One of the nice things about margeff is that a single command will generate all the marginal effects. With margins, you have to have a separate command for each outcome, e.g. if y has 4 categories you need to do something like mlogit y i.x1 i.x2 margins, dydx(*) predict(outcome(#1)) margins, dydx(*) predict(outcome(#2)) margins, dydx(*) predict(outcome(#3)) margins, dydx(*) predict(outcome(#4)) Having margins do all the outcomes at once after things like mlogit and ologit is on my ongoing wish list for each new version of stata.
