I am using stata 9.2. I would like to know how to call the coefficientsfrom the estimation results matrix e(b) and use them in an equation. Forexample, if my matrix e(b) has values for "_cons" and coefficient "test", Iwould like to calculate the answer to an equation y = [_cons] + x*[test].How can I do this?The reason why I want to do this is because I am trying to find the value_fracpoly_ adjusts its estimates by. If I use this output from my_fracpoly_ estimation:study1twsg Coef. Std. Err. t P>t [95% Conf. Interval] Itemp__1 15093.12 4454.121 3.39 0.012 4560.802 25625.45 Itemp__2 -10666.18 3136.84 -3.40 0.011 -18083.63 -3248.734 Itemp__3 1945.114 569.9302 3.41 0.011 597.4436 3292.785 _cons .0053322 .0008244 6.47 0.000 .0033828 .0072815 Deviance: -113.24. Best powers of temp among 164 models fit: -2 -2 -2.and I plug in these coefficients with my 'x' having a value of 25, mylinear regression equation for predicting y is:y=.0053322+(15093.12*25^-2)+(-10666.18*25^-2*log(25))+1945.114*25^-2*(log(25))^2However, this equation does not yield the same value as _predict_ (or_fracpred_), and this is because fracpoly secretly adjusts its constant.If I can calculate the answer to this equation and put it into a variable,I can then find the difference between this variable and the value that_fracpred_ gives.Thank you for your help. Hopefully this isn't too confusing. Chris * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
