To do so I create a local `xb_for' which contains the linear predictor assuming the car is foreign and a local `xb_dom' which contains the linear predictor assuming that the car is domestic. (actually the locals contain the commands that will create the linear predictors, but that is a detail) Consider the code for the linear predictor assuming that the cars are foreign. #delim ; local xb_for "_b[_cons] + _b[foreign] + _b[mpg]*mpg + _b[foreignXmpg]*mpg" ; #delim cr In that case we know that the the variable foreign has value 1, so _b[foreign]*foreign = _b[foreign]*1 = _b[foreign] similarly: _b[foreignXmpg]*foreign*mpg = _b[foreignXmpg]*1*mpg = _b[foreignXmpg]*mpg -- Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
