Okay, so i try to describe what i want to do:
Actually i would like to come up with a linear demand function like that:
Consumption= constant+ beta_1*Price+beta_2*Income+ ...
and a loglog demand function.
I used the spreadheet programm and manually calculated Consumption for various prices and got the two demand functions from that, but unfortunatly, due to the log transformation i have the following problem:
exp(E(ln(Consumption))) is not equal to E(Consumption).
I thought more precise estimates would help-but as it turned out now- they don't.
So, can I  estimate the consumption for different prices directly in Stata to get the demand functions?
Then, I should be able to deal with the retransformation bias  as suggested in Cameron&Trivedi(2009):Microeconometrics using Stata.

Thank you very much!
