For my dataset I need a weighting factor (for every observation) calculated as

w=xi'(X'X)^-1 *xi, where X is a n*k matrix of all variables and all observations, and xi is a k*1 vector with the variable-values for a single observation. The middle part, (X'X)^-1, I can build using "matrix accum", but I can't get STATA to build a n*1 vector for every observation to pre- and postmultiply it with. Hope some of you might a suggestion.

following:

webuse auto,clear

mkmat price mpg headroom trunk, mat(x)

mat wfull = x*syminv(x'*x)*x'

mat iota = J(rowsof(wfull),1,1)

mat wt = wfull*iota

svmat wt

summ wt

list wt

This is ugly, in that it generates a n x n matrix and uses only the diagonal, but that is much cleaner than extracting each row of x in a loop.
