MARGEFF: Stata module to compute average marginal effects for categorical and limited dependent variable models

Tamás Bartus

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: margeff calculates average marginal effects, and standard errors for marginal effects using the delta method. Rather than computing marginal effects at the means of the variables, or at values specified by the user, margeff calculates the average of partial and discrete changes over the observations. Calculations are restricted to the estimation sample. This routine was previously titled margin. margeff8 is the older version of this program.
