Regarding unnecessary queries to the list: how much would it take to
implement a search function for the Statalist discussions in official
Stata`s help menu? -search- could automatically include the material
available from the "Archive search" button on the site That would surely lower the
frequency of unnecessary posts...

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Outdated unofficial commands include anything whose name starts with

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

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