# Questions tagged [marginal-model]

A marginal model estimates population averages, in contrast to a subject-specific model that estimates an expected value conditional on a subject's attributes. In a linear model context, these are the same, but they differ for nonlinear models. The GEE is the most salient marginal model.

### how to interpret the marginal effect on y from an etregess model of ln(y)

Using stata (with weighted survey design) I ran the following, where logwage is the log of wage. The log was taken because wage was not normally distributed. There is also information about the ...
