Dear Stata enthusiasts: 
I am using predict after an xt command. It works fine in the sense that I
get output, but it is not clear to me what the predict command does with the
random effect   
For example,
xtpois school_days_missed age male self_efficacy knowledge,re i(site)
predict pred, xb
Are different sites simply ignored for prediction? Is some sort of averaging
going on (how?)?  
Thanks ,
