st: RE: RE: RE: version 7 > 8
Don't mention it in public, but I
did not look at the manual; I relied
on what was left behind after your
call to -alpha-.
If we fix that point and use instead
program avcorwithin, rclass
alpha bef*, std
scalar `y' = r(rho)
alpha aft*, std
return scalar diff = r(rho) - `y'
bootstrap "avcorwithin" r(diff), reps(1000)
then I get no error message. I am using
Stata/SE 8.2 with files up to date as
of 31 Oct 2003 (exe) and 5 Nov 2003 (ado).
I manufactured variables -aft1- -aft2- -bef1-
