Dear all,

I have fitted a mixed effects model using -xtmixed-, and require the 
fitted values with corresponding standard errors. 

After fitting the model, it is possible to obtain predictions and standard 
errors for the fixed portion using -adjust-, or -predict, xb- and 
-predict, se-.  However, this fixes all the random effects in the model to 
their theoretical mean value of zero, which is not what I require.  I can 
get the fitted values that include the random effects using -predict, 
fitted-, but I am struggling to find how (if at all) you can get the 
standard errors.

Wherever I have seen examples that use -xtmixed-, the fitted values are 
never presented with a confidence interval.  Also, I have noted from 
previous threads in statalist that -xtmixed- cannot currently provide 
standard errors for the BLUPs of random effects (  Does this 
therefore mean that what I require is not currently possible?

Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
