You are entirely right. My embarrassed thanks. Austin Nichols wrote:

Just guessing, but do you mean predict(ystar(0,.)) instead of predict(ystar(o,.)) ?

Everything looks ok except in the output appears Expression: E(atotgiv*|atotgiv>otherrelh), predict (ystar(0,.)) The appearance of otherrelh in this expression is mysterious. This is another dummy variable used as a control. I didn't program it to look at that, and I think it should read, instead, E(atotgiv*|atotgiv>0), etc. Is this a bug? A mistake on my part? A misunderstanding?
