The -bootstrap- command does not perform sampling that takes weighted
observations into account, nor can it handle multiple stages of cluster
For these reasons, the -bootstrap- command is generally not recommended for
use with survey data analysis; except for the cases where there is at most one
stage of clustering and the weights are constant within stratum.
Even for these cases, the -bootstrap- command does not post a "residual"
degrees of freedom so that -test- will perform an F test instead of a
