Christiana Titaley <christiana.titaley@gmail.com>: No, your understanding is wrong; there is no estimate for time 2, so the only equation -predict- can possibly be using is based on time 1 estimates. It's still not clear to me what you intend doing, but maybe you just want to show density estimates like below. See also -oaxaca-, -jmpierce, -jmpierce2, and -dfl- on SSC, and references therein for additional approaches; also http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2009-07/msg00602.html u if t==1 using http://www.stata-press.com/data/r11/psidextract, clear g wage=exp(lwage) qui poisson wage south smsa fem union ed blk predict hat keep t hat lwage wage tempfile t1 save `t1' qui forv i=2/7 { u if t==`i' using http://www.stata-press.com/data/r11/psidextract, clear predict hat`i' keep t hat`i' lwage g w`i'=exp(lwage) append using `t1' tempfile t1 save `t1', replace } tw kdensity hat||kdensity hat2||kdensity hat4||kdensity hat7 tw kdensity w4||kdensity hat4||kdensity w7||kdensity hat7 On Sun, Dec 5, 2010 at 12:31 AM, Christiana Titaley <christiana.titaley@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi Austin, > > Thank you for your response.
