Do you have observations for variable x beyond 1990? If so then -predict- should give you out of sample predictions. In general, -predict- calculates the requested statistic for all possible observations, whether they were used in the model or not. In the example below, the model is estimated on data up to 1980q1, but the predicted values go to 1990q4. . use http://www.stata-press.com/data/r9/wpi1.dta, clear . arch ln_wpi if tin(,1980q1), arch(1) garch(1) nolog BFGS stepping has contracted, resetting BFGS Hessian (0) ARCH family regression Sample: 1960q1 to 1980q1 Number of obs = 81 Wald chi2(.) = .
