Yes, see the -man predict- page (http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?predict), items 6 and 7 in the Description section near the top... predict can be used to make in-sample or out-of-sample predictions: 6. predict calculates the requested statistic for all possible observations, whether they were used in fitting the model or not. predict does this for the standard options 1 through 3 and generally does this for estimator-specific options 4. 7. predict newvar if e(sample), ... restricts the prediction to the estimation subsample. So in your above example under Stata 11 you should use... predict yhat if(e(sample)) Neil -- "Our civilization would be pitifully immature without the intellectual revolution led by Darwin" - Motoo Kimura, The Neutral Theory of Molecular Evolution Email - nshephard@gmail.com Website - http://kimura-no-ip.org/ Photos - http://www.flickr.com/photos/slackline/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
