st: Predictions and psuedo Rsq in zoib

Hello Statalisters,

I have estimated the following equation:

zoib y1 x1 x2, zeroinflate (x1 x2) cluster (z) nolog
zoib y2 x1 x2 zeroinflate (x1 x2) cluster (z) nolog

where yi = income from various sources and z = geographical location
(city dummies).

I would like to calculate the pseudo-R squares.

Thus I specified the following:

predict y1_pred

Stata responded with:

(option pr assumed)

I think I am okay with this because I just want to get a sense of the
global measure of explained variance as Ferrari and Cribari-Neto (
2004) suggest for beta regression. I'm assuming that a similar method
on zoib is not so bad.

However, on running a correlation, I get a correlation of -0.5. Why
would the correlation be negative!?! I used the command below.

correlate y1 y1_pred

On the other hand,

correlate y2 y2_pred

gives me a positive correlation.

Am I misinterpreting the result or is this an incorrect way to
ascertain Rsquares for an inflated beta regression?

I am using Stata 11.2. I installed zoib from ssc.
