I am confused. I don't understand what 
works and what doesn't. 

Stas may well be right: -mrate- could 
be producing pure garbage. But I can't 
comment on a program I can't see in 
an area I don't know. From what 
you tell us I still suggest 

su v001, meanonly
local nclust = r(max)
gen mortrate = . 
qui forval i=1/`nclust' {
      cap mrate if v001==`i'
      replace mortrate = $U_1_1 if v001 == `i' 
     
}

Incidentally, from your information, -mrate- seems
a rather strange program if it doesn't 
need to know what variables to work on.
