I have very little experience with MATA, but it seems to me that the desired result can be achieved using pointers and arrays of pointers. Here is an example. For i=1 to i=10, the following program creates and displays a 2x2 matrix filled with i: mata // declare an array of NULL pointers P = J(10,1,NULL) for (i=1;i<10;i++) { // create a matrix and assign its address to P[i] P[i] = &(J(2,2,i)) // just make sure that all the elements of P don't point to the same matrix } for (i=1;i<10;i++) { i // dereference the i-th element of P to get the i-th matrix in the "collection" *(P[i]) } end The alternative is to create a single big matrix and extract rows from that matrix as needed.
