Dear all, Neil his reaction is correct. However, it shows that I did not formulate my problem accurate, because it is not the solution that works for me. Let me extend the example with one extra observation to make myself more clear x1 testset y 1 1 12 2 1 13 3 1 14 4 2 . 3 2 . So the last observation is defined by x1 in the same way as the third observation. The testset (testset==2) consists of 2 observations, from which the observation with x1=3 can be predicted based on the traininset (testset==1) but the observation with x1=4 can not be predicted because x1=4 is not in the trainingset. First in version 11 version 11 anova y x1 if testset==1 predict yhat Gives the following result in version 11 x1 testset y yhat 1 1 12 12 2 1 13 13 3 1 14 14 4 2 . 12 3 2 . 14 Now in version 10 version 10 anova y x1 if testset==1 predict yhat Gives the following result x1 testset y yhat 1 1 12 12 2 1 13 13 3 1 14 14 4 2 . . 3 2 . 14 This problem is not fixed with the 'e(sample)' suggestion, because I do want to predict in the testset (outside e(sample)), however, I only want predictions for values of x1 that are used in the trainingset (testset==1).

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/ * * 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/
