intgph (co-authored with Dan Blanchette) is a Stata command that facilitates the interpretation of interaction effects in selected nonlinear models. The command employs King et al.'s (2000) simulation-based approach and presents results graphically in the manner suggested in my forthcoming SMJ article, "Using Simulation to Interpret Results from Logit, Probit, and Other Nonlinear Models."

In order to install intgph, type -ssc install intgph- at the Stata command prompt. (If you find bugs or have suggestions for how to improve intgph, please send me an email.)
