Introduction to the Stata -margins- Command
Margins do       Margins log
Instructor: Hsueh-Sheng Wu
Monday, June 3, 12:30-1:30 pm
CFDR Conference Room, 7C Williams Hall
       Social scientists often conduct regression analyses to identify predictors that are statistically associated with the outcome variables and then use regression coefficients to estimate the marginal effect of the predictor on the outcome variable. Stata has a -margins- command to facilitate the estimation of the marginal effect , which is particular useful when regression models involve categorical variables, a squared term of the predictor, or an interaction between predictors. This workshop provides an introduction on: (1) what the marginal effect is, (2) how to specify the -margins- command in Stata, (3) how to obtain and plot marginal effects of the predictor between groups of respondents, and (4) how to test the difference in the marginal effects of the predictor between groups of respondents.
