Hi all!
This is probably a really basic question but my brain's not working too well today...
I want to obtain values for a particular variable ("x") after adjustment for another variable ("y"), so that the new variable ("adjusted x") no longer varies with "y".
After typing "regress x y", giving the equation xhat=a+b*y, I think I need to obtain the variable x-b*y. Is this correct, and is there a way to obtain this variable without copy-pasting the regression coefficient into a "gen" command?
Thanks,
David Fisher.
