I'm calculating and generating prediction intervals for a subset of a data set, but when I graph the subset, the range on the x-axis is the range of all of the data, instead of only the sample. For example: ### use "http://www.stata-press.com/data/imeus/hprice2a";, clear sort lnox summ lnox summ lnox if _n <= 100 ### . summ lnox Variable | Obs Mean Std. Dev. Min Max -------------+-------------------------------------------------------- lnox | 506 1.693091 .2014102 1.348073 2.164472 . summ lnox if _n <= 100 Variable | Obs Mean Std. Dev. Min Max -------------+-------------------------------------------------------- lnox | 100 1.435845 .0361544 1.348073 1.48614 The range of the sample is [1.348073, .48614], but when I calculate and graph the predicted values, the range of -lnox- is [1.348073, 2.164472], which is too large. Here is the complete do-file: ### use "http://www.stata-press.com/data/imeus/hprice2a";, clear sort lnox summ lnox summ lnox if _n <= 100 quietly regress lprice lnox if _n <= 100 predict double xb if e(sample) predict double stdpred if e(sample), stdp scalar tval = invttail(e(df_r), 0.975) gen double uplim = xb + tval * stdpred gen double lowlim = xb - tval * stdpred summ lnox if e(sample), meanonly local lnoxbar = r(mean) label var xb "Predicted" label var uplim "95% prediction interval" label var lowlim "95% prediction interval" #delimit ; twoway (rarea lowlim uplim lnox, sort bcolor(gs14)) (scatter lprice lnox if e(sample), sort ms(Oh) xline(`lnoxbar')) (rline uplim lowlim lnox if e(sample), sort), ytitle("Actual and predicted log price") legend(cols(1)) xsize(18) ysize(12); #delimit cr ### Is there a way to automatically do this, or should I manually specify -xaxis- and -xlabel- ?
