'LEVPREDICT': module to compute log-linear level predictions without retransformation bias


     levpredict is a post-estimation command for use after a
     log-linear regression model has been estimated. It generates
     predictions of the levels of the dependent variable for the
     estimation sample. These predictions avoid the retransformation
     bias that arises when predictions of the log dependent variable
     are exponentiated. See Cameron and Trivedi, MUS, 2009, 3.6.3.
