st: re: predicting y, with other variables
I hope some of you can help me...
I estimate a regression and I saved the coefficients e(b) in the
corresponding matrix. Now I would like to apply these coefficients
estimates to the same set of x's variables, but for one that I want to
substitute with another and calculate the predicted values (to see
which is the variation in the rpedicted values using this other
variables). Anyone of you knows how to do this?
I tried creating a matrix with the new x's variables, but my n=2400
and so the matsize set does not allow me to create such a matrix.
Just create additional observations in your x matrix for the
observations for which you want to predict 'out of sample'. When you
run the regression, those observations will be ignored as their value
of y is missing. Then
predict double oos if ~e(sample)
will generate predictions (using the default , xb) for the
observations that are not in the regression sample.
