For starters, I think you want to use -forvalues- instead of -foreach-.

Because you do -tab- after -sum-, r(mean) is lost. Try:

  qui sum hit
  local mu=r(mean)
  tab `e(depvar)' pred, freq nocol
  di in green "the mean hit rate is `mu'"

if you want to store the mean, or just reverse the order of the
-sum- and the -tab-.

Hope this helps.

here is a program (the last for this week I promise) which is supposed
to run after various choice models. It should calculate the hit rate of
correct predictions. Two things create problems: the mean hit rate is
not shown and the -foreach- loop doesn't seem to work. Maybe someone
would like to take a closer look.


set obs 100

gen x=invnorm(uniform())

gen e=invnorm(uniform())

gen y=round(2*exp(1+x+e)/(1+exp(1+x+e)),1)

ologit y x


Program to run after most Discrete Choice Models

it reports the hit rate of correct predictions
