   Predict uses one-step ahead prediction based on a Kalman filter. If these
are iterated, they constitute one-step ahead iterated projection based on
the previous forecasts.  If you want to predict x instead of dx, use
predict raw, y.  Dynamic forecasts are based on actual values up to the
point of forecast.

> Dear statalisters,
