I've noticed that questions on stepwise regression or the like
occasionally go unanswered on Statalist, perhaps because the practice
is inadvisable (i.e. don't do it!).
hireg isn't stepwise though. It is nested models, where the user specified the order of entry, which is much more respectable than stepwise. The Stata 9 command -nestreg- is derived from -hireg-, so upgrading to Stata 9 would be another way of addressing the problem.
