Hi Statalist

My question is about how we can get Margins commands to work correctly when the estimation model, which includes interaction terms, does not support factor notation.

Specifically, I understand there are good reasons as to why models such as -xthtaylor- do not support factor notations & I have simply created the interaction terms manually via inter = i.x1 * i.x2 if !missing(x1) & !missing(x2).

However, this poses a difficulty when it comes to using -margins- & -marginsplot-.

I note a related discussion from https://www.statalist.org/forums/for...action-effects. Unfortunately I am not yet skilled enough in Stata programming to confidently implement Daniel's solution in that post. I am therefore wondering if anyone might be aware of user-written commands or the like to address this issue?

Thanks,

Junran
