As useful as the by: prefix is, this is an example of where a little bit of Stata programming goes a long way.

Sort year

By year: quietly reg y x1 x2 x3

Normally, after a regression you can type "predict res, residual", but I am

not sure how to incorporate it in the above framework. Stata doesn't seem to

let me type more than one command after the "by" function. E.g. it won't let

me type something like

By year: quietly reg y x1 x2 x3, predict res, residual

forvalues y = 1960/2000 {

qui regress y x1 x2 x3 if year==`y'

qui predict double eps`y' if e(sample), resid

}

If you really want them in different variables. A common variation that I have used often that stuffs them all into one variable (saves a whole lot of space) is

gen eps = .

forvalues y = 1960/2000 {

qui regress y x1 x2 x3 if year==`y'

tempvar temp

qui predict double `temp' if e(sample), resid

qui replace eps = `temp' if e(sample)

}

Note that the 'if e(sample)' will generate residuals only for in-sample observations; e.g. if there are 1960 obs that do not enter the regression due to missing values in the reglist, they will not have residuals.
