Hi Maarten,

Thanks for your example.

Just wondering what the 'replace' commands are doing specifically? I guess it's not important for me.

Ideally, I ran my regressions stratifying by race, (if race==1 and so on) - should I also predict yhat separately for each racial group as well?

Thanks,

/Amal.

*---------------- begin example ----------------
sysuse nlsw88, clear
reg wage i.race##c.grade i.union hours ttl_exp
preserve
replace union = 1
replace hours = 40
replace ttl_exp = 15
bys race grade : keep if _n == 1
predict yhat
separate yhat, by(race)
twoway line yhat1 yhat2 yhat3 grade
restore
*--------------- end example -------------------

Hope this helps,
