# Re: st: Regression by industry and year excluding firm i

 From Steve Samuels To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject Re: st: Regression by industry and year excluding firm i Date Sat, 14 Dec 2013 13:24:19 -0500

```Stata can compute all delete-one predictions
in a group after just one run of regress:

Let # indicate that an observation has been omitted
before calculation of the corresponding statistic

If "y" is the response variable.
I use the following regression identity

1) y = xb# + e#

xb# =  delete-one predicted mean
e# =  delete-one residual

Thus

(2) xb# = y- e#

So it's just necessary to compute e#

Let e be the ordinary residual.

(3) e# = e/(1-h)

where h is the observation's diagonal element of the
hat matrix   (See any regression text)

Stata can compute 1- h, because it can
compute the standard error of a residual (stdr)
after regress, and:

(4) stdr = s * sqrt(1- h) , where s is is the rmse

(5) So: 1- h = (stdr/s)^2

(6) e# = e/(1-h) = e# * (s/stdr)^2

Substituting into (2), gives

(7) xb# = y - e# * (s/stdr)^2

Dear All
I might didn't explain well in my initial post. So I just want to be sure we are all on the same line:

I want to run a regression for every two digit SIC code (industry classification) and fiscal year (cross sectionally), while firm i is not included in the observations that are used to estimate the coefficients per industry and fiscal year. Then I use the estimated coefficients from each regression run by industry and fiscal year and multiply them by actual values of firm i that was previously excluded in the regression. This means that the number of regressions will not be 95,000, as regressions will run for each group of two digit SIC code and fiscal year. I drop any sic code fiscal year with observations less than 10.

At the end of the day, I want to have expected core earnings calculated for each firm in each industry and fiscal year in my sample.

I am sorry I might have not been clear at the beginning.

Nick, Is your code intended to achieve that ?

Many thanks
Ahmed

Ahmed,
As an aside, this is strikes me as one of those instances where you would
benefit a great deal from debugging your code on a subset of your data.  You
need enough data for your regressions to run without errors but I'd try
getting the loop working on a subset of a few hundred observations rather
than the whole data set.  That will run much more quickly.  The resulting
predictions will be nonsense but they'll serve as a proof of concept.  Once
you're happy that you have code that does what you expect you can run it on
the whole dataset with a certain amount of confidence that even if it takes
a very long time, you'll get the results that reflect your intended process.
-Sarah

Ahmed,
In addition to Nick Cox comments, keep in mind that based on your
explanation, you need to run 95000 regressions. which will be very time
consuming. But, computer time is "cheap".
I would suggest, however, to clarify if each observation represent a
different Firm, which is assumption on how your code and Nick's are handling
the problem.
