In this article, we examine prediction in the context of linear index models when one or more of the regressors are endogenous. To facilitate both within-sample and out-of-sample predictions, Stata offers the postestimation command predict (see [R] predict). We believe that the usefulness of the predictions provided by this command is limited, especially if one is interested in out-of-sample predictions. We demonstrate our point using a probit model with continuous endogenous regressors, although it clearly generalizes readily to other linear index models. We subsequently provide a program that offers one possible implementation of a new command, ivpredict, that can be used to address this s..
