Predict Directive


Prediction is the process of forming a linear function of the vector of fixed and random effects in the linear model to obtain an estimated or predicted value for a quantity of interest. It is primarily used for predicting tables of adjusted means. If a table is based on a subset of the explanatory variables then the other variables need to be accounted for. It is usual to form a predicted value either at specified values of the remaining variables, or averaging over them in some way.
