I would also suggest being very careful in reporting any p-values.  You are doing 44 regressions - and if you have 10 predictors, you could have 440 tests - at least do a Bonferroni adjustment to temper your enthusiasm

Hi,

I have a simple programming problem, and since I'm not familiar with 
Stata programming I need some help.

I have to do 44 logit regressions and predictions where the only thing 
that changes from regression to regression is the dependent variable.  
Each regression uses a subset of the data.  At the end of each 
regression, I predict the dependent variable for the remaining portion 
of the data, saving the prediction as p_dependentVariableName.  I'd like 
to create a loop where the dependent variable will change in each pass 
through the loop and that variable name will be attached to p_ for the 
prediction.

How can I do this?  Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Walt
