Please see advice in the Statalist FAQ on how to find out things. The
list is not a substitute for -help-, -search-, -findit- or Google. 

You can do nonparametric regressions in various ways in Stata. 

Official commands include -lowess-, -lpoly-. 

Unofficial commands include -mrunning-, -rcspline-. 

Outdated unofficial commands include anything whose name starts with
-kernreg-. 

Use -findit- for precise locations. 

However, nonparametric regression with multiple predictors is not well
supported in Stata -- except that, arguably, fractional polynomials are
very well supported. 

More to the point, I am not clear how you would combine bootstrapping
with any regression not parametrically specified. What do you have in
mind?

I am performing the bootstrap regressions. Do you know which is the
STATA command to perform non-parametric bootstrap regressions?
