Hi Nick. Thanks for this and for asking me to clarify. I'm using xtpcse with a first order autocorrelation correction. Do I understand you correctly that if my original model (with other covariates omitted) is Y = b0 + b1x1+b2x2+b3x1*x2 And I want to estimate the predicted values of a model in which b1 = b1+b3, then I would regress Y^(=y-b1+b3x1) on x2 and the rest of the covariates and then estimated the prediction?

Naturally, this isn't universal, but what could be universal across all possible estimation commands? Moral: You should tell us more about the command you are using.

For example, one model includes an interaction term between a given socioeconomic process and a dummy variable for institutional regime. I would like to ask questions like "what would the trend in my outcome look like if the socioeconomic process had the larger of the two conditional (i.e. by regime type) effects". > > Is there a universal means by which to set a given coefficient to a fixed value prior to model estimation. Or, can I estimate predicted values using stored results but change the coefficient on one covariate beforehand? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
