Nick, please provide more details about your problem: I'd like to know: what the target population is, how the sample was drawn, what defines the clusters, and in what way they overlap. Also, what questions do you want to answer with the bootstrap--do you want simple descriptive statistics for subpopulations or do you want to do make comparisons, do modeling, or all of the above. If you are working with an established survey, is there a document which suggests an analysis setup (not necessarily in Stata)?

I suspect that you have a panel study in which different households? firms? rotate in and out, so that the overlap is in time--but I await your answer.

Steve

Is there a way to use the cluster option on the bootstrap command to take
draws of overlapping clusters?

Thanks,
