ear Statalist,

I am wondering how I can interpret the economic significance of categorical variables. 
For example I research the effect of the employer type (public or private sector employees) on risk aversion. I find that the probability of being risk averse in the public sector is 6.3 percentage points greater than in the private sector. The sample consists of 1137 individuals. How do I know whether this effect is economic significant?

Best regards,
