The conditional fitted values are calculated using the following equation:

Term | Description |
---|---|

the vector of the new settings for the fixed effect terms | |

the estimated coefficients for the fixed effect terms | |

The vector of the new settings for the random terms | |

he BLUP predictions for the random terms |

The standard error of a conditional fitted value equals the square root of the following variance expression.

where

**X** is the design matrix for the fixed effect terms and **Z** is the design matrix for the random terms.

The range in which the mean response for a given set of predictor values is expected to fall.

is the conditional fit. is the standard error of he fit.

The degrees of freedom use this formula for the conditional case:
