Hi all, 

I am trying to use bootstrap now (rather than jackknife) to do the same
as before:

biprobit  (y1= x2 y1 y2 u1) (y2 = x2 z2) [pweight=weight], robust

I tried several specifications - none of which worked:

1) biprobit (y1=x1 x2 y2 u2) (y2 = x2 z2), ///
		vce(bootstrap [pweight=weight]) cluster(clusty)

2) biprobit (y1=x1 x2 y2 u2) (y2 = x2 z2) [pweight=weight], ///
		vce(bootstrap) cluster(clusty)

3) bootstrap, reps(100) seed(1): biprobit (y1=x1 x2 y2 u2) (y2 = x2 z2)
[pweight=weight],///      		robust cluster(slnew)

Is there a similar problem as in jakknife in bootstrap too or there is
another way of writing the syntax? Or, more simply, bootstrap does not
allow pweights?

Sabrina Di Addario <> is using
-pweight-s and
-vce(jackknife)- with the seemingly unrelated bivariate probit model:

Sabrina found a parsing error in -jackknife- that is caused by the
multi-equation specification of the SU biprobit syntax.

The fix for this will be available in an upcoming ado-file update.

In the mean time, Sabrina can specify the -pweight-s inside the -vce()-
(an undocumented feature).

	biprobit (y1=x1 x2 y2 u2) (y2 = x2 z2), ///
		vce(jackknife [pweight=weight]) cluster(clusty)
