November 2009 23:28 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: Ignore dummy variable in predict function? Dear Statalist: I have a dataset in which my dependent variable -- say, life expectancy, so I can use the uslifexp.dta file as an example -- is measured according to two different methods. In other words, life expectancy is measured according to method a in some years and method b in other years. Method a always yields measures that are lower than those generated with method b, though much lower varies by observation. I would like to identify the time trend in this data. Hence I regress the outcome variable on year and a dummy variable for the observations generated with method a, a la: sysuse uslifeexp.dta, clear **(Imitating my actual data) gen le_measure1=. replace le_measure1=le-5 if year<=1950 | year==1965 | year==1972 | year==1986 | year==1989 replace le_measure1=le if le_measure1==. **The regression: gen measuredummy=1 replace measuredummy=0 if le_measure1==le regress le_measure1 year measuredummy Now I would like to generate predicted values of le, **as if** all of the method-a observations had been created using method b. In other words: when I follow the regress command with "predict le_predict" and then look at "twoway (scatter le_measure1 year) (lfit le_measure1 year) (line le_predict year)", I want the le_predict line (green) to be straight. It would be something like "predict le_predict as if measuredummy==0," if such a command existed. Thank you!! D.
