st: RE: prvalue and the invisible prediction
Stata [sic] is innocent here. It is doing what -prvalue-
tells it to. -prvalue- is, as you know but others may
not, a program from the -spost- package from Scott Long and Jeremy
Freese. I am not sure if either is a member of Statalist,
so if you get no good answers to this, the next step may be
to contact the program authors directly.
Can -adjust- help with what you want?
