Hi Austin, Thank you for your response. What I want to do is to examine the trends of neonatal deaths across 5 surveys; whether the changes in the predictors included in the Poisson model contributed to the reduction of neonatal deaths over time. E.g, using the grunfeld dataset, u if time==1 using http://www.stata-press.com/data/r11/grunfeld.dta, clear poisson invest mvalue kstock, r predict hat This will give me the predicted number of hat for time 1 and also the predicted equation. I want to apply this equation (time 1) to the subsequent data (time 2, 3 ...) to get the predicted number of "hat" by controlling for the same set of predictors (mvalue, kstock). At the end, I will compare the observed and predicted numbers of hat. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding from the command below is it uses the equation from time 2, instead of time 1, to get the number of hat for year 2: u if time==2 using http://www.stata-press.com/data/r11/grunfeld.dta, clear predict hat li hat mvalue, clean Do you have any idea what command I can use to apply the first equation (time 1) to the subsequent survey data? Thank you very much.
