st: Intervals for predicted mean value vs predicted individual value |

Dear Statalist, I am trying to reproduce an example in Bowerman et al.'s "Forecasting, Time Series, and Regression." I have inputted the following data into Stata . input temp fuelcons . 28 12.4 . 28 11.7 . 32.5 12.4 . 39 10.8 . 45.9 9.4 . 57.8 9.5 . 58.1 8 . 62.5 7.5 . end After regressing fuelcons on temp, I can obtain predicted values of fuelcons using . regress fuelcons temp . predict pfuelcons I can also get the standard errors of the predicted mean using . predict pmfuelcons, stdp Finally, I can get the standard errors of the predicted individuals fuelcons values using . predict pyfuelcons, stdf I know that I can use this information to obtain a confidence interval for the conditional mean and a confidence interval for a particular value of fuelcons given a value for temp in the data. My question is whether there is a command that will allow me to estimate a 95% confidence interval for the mean value of fuelcons given a particular value of temp that is not included in the data, but is in the range of temp (e.g., given a temp of 40). I would also like to get a 95% confidence interval for an individual value of fuelcons given a particular value of temp that is not included in the original data, but is in the range of temp (e.g., given a temp of 40). The confidence interval for the mean value of fuelcons when temp equals 40, and the prediction interval for an individual value of fuelcons when temp equals 40 are computed automatically in MINITAB as Fit SE Fit 95% CI 95% PI 10.721 .241 (10.130, 11.312) (9.015, 12.427) Is it possible to do this in Stata with a single command? I am a bit worried that I am overlooking something simple in, so I apologize in advance if that's the case, and thank you for assisting with such a long question. Cheers, Adam Guerrero * * 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/
