st: How many statistics can be bootstrapped by one program? |

Dear Sirs, I need to bootstrap a large number of statistics, actually, it is 5 statistics, calculated for the different year-category groups of the data set. Up to now I have no luck in obtaining bootstrap estimates for the number of statistics larger than 4. I use the following program, which works fine for 4 statistics : program define jobflo version 6.0 if "`1'" == "?" { global S_1 "POS_98 NEG_98 POS_99 NEG_99" exit } local i=1998 while `i'<=1999 { summarize pos if year == `i' local bf`i' = r(sum) summarize neg if year == `i' local cd`i' = r(sum) summarize xit if year == `i' local ef`i' = r(sum) local gh`i' = `bf`i' ' / `ef`i'' local jk`i' = `cd`i' '/`ef`i'' local i = `i'+1 } post `1' `gh1998' `jk1998' `gh1999' `jk1999' end However, if I add one more statistic for calculation so that the program looks like: program define jobflo1 version 6.0 if "`1'" == "?" { global S_1 "POS_98 NEG_98 NET_98 POS_99 NEG_99 NET_99" exit } local i=1998 while `i'<=1999 { summarize pos if year == `i' local bf`i' = r(sum) summarize neg if year == `i' local cd`i' = r(sum) summarize xit if year == `i' local ef`i' = r(sum) local gh`i' = `bf`i'' / `ef`i'' local jk`i' = `cd`i''/`ef`i'' local tf`i' = `gh`i'' - 'jk`i'' local i = `i'+1 } post `1' `gh1998' `jk1998' `tf1998' `gh1999' `jk1999' `tf1998' end I get the Stata message " 'jk1998' invalid name". Please, note, that I added one more statistic for calculation, which is tf`i' and that 'jk1998' did not create any problems in the first program. PLease, note also, that in the data set there are only 4 variables called pos, neg, xit, year I would highly appreciate, if somebody explains me what can be the reason of my problem. Thank you very much.
