st: Generating predicted values for OLS with transformed dependent variables
I have a question on statistics and a possible implementation in Stata:
I know that generating predicted values from an OLS with a
log-transformed dependent variable needs some adjustment to generate
consistent and unbiased values (van Garderen 2001 or Wooldridges
textbook explain this).
Does anyone know if a similar logic applies to other transformations,
for example a "root-root" (2x square root) transformation? If yes, does
anyone know how that adjustment would look like and how it would be
implemented in Stata?
