st: loop |

Dear All, I wrote a loop for wage regressions to obtain the predicted wages if men are paid as men at each occupation: reg lwage $x if fem==0 predict pip if fem==0, xb forvalues k = 1 2 to 7 { predict pip`k' if fem==0 & occ`k'==1, xb } summarize pip, meanonly scalar xMbM=r(mean) /*Predicted wages if men are paid as men*/ forvalues k = 1 2 to 7 { summarize pip`k', meanonly scalar xMbM`k'=r(mean) /*Predicted wages if men are paid as men at each occupation*/ } I now want to get the xMbM (and also xFbF for females) by occupation. For each occupation I want the product between ythe mean individual charachteristics (xM) and the coefficients (bM). I tried with this loop, but i'm not sure it's the correct one: reg lwage $x if fem==0 predict pip if occupation==1, xb forvalues k = 1 { predict pip`k' if fem==0 & occ`k'==1, xb } summarize pip, meanonly scalar xMbM=r(mean) /*Predicted wages if men are paid as men*/ forvalues k = 1 { summarize pip`k', meanonly scalar xMbM`k'=r(mean) /*Predicted wages if men are paid as men at each occupation*/ } More precisely, i'm not sure this wille give me each product between mean values of characteristics (x, for M or F) and estomated wage equation coefficients (b, for M or F) at each 1...7 occupation.
