Great! Thank you very much, Kieran!

You need modify the code that Richard suggested earlier.


gen r == .

foreach levl of local levels {
reg migration t4 t2 t3 if region_code == `levl'
predict x, resid
replace r = x if region_code == `levl'
drop x

Subject: st: How to 'predict' residual by region? Seasonal adjustment?

Dear stata users,
I have another related question. I need to 'predict' residual by region.

When I run the following code it only uses the coefficients from the last regression to predict residuals:

by region: reg migration t2 t3 t4
predict r, resid

if I try to do the loop, it says that r is already defined:

levelsof region_code, local(levels)
foreach levl of local levels {
reg migration t4 t2 t3 if region_code == `levl'
predict r, resid
}

Also, does anybody know a good seasonal adjustment procedure in Stata?
Thank you!
