Try this:

foreach x of varlist [list of variables]  {

logistic `x' [predictor vars]
predict p_`x'

}

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
