As long as you do not show the whole line starting with -logit- it is hard to tell what the problem is. Note that you could shorten the -numlist- for the loop to 1/10 because your stepsize is 1. I am not sure what the -sort- line is intended to accomplish. Obviously "anyprevcs" comes from the dataset you open inside the loop?` The line " replace dropouts =1 if anyprevcs==1 & (_N - _n) < 3575 " could probably be done more elegantly with the -in - qualifier (in -3575/l).

Seems like a textbook case for -simulate- as I suggested yesterday http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-09/msg00392.html. In fact, I cannot see what is saved inside the loop. The -summarize- line would throw up output for the screen, but if you want to save characteristics of the predictions, -simulate- is the way to go...

It would be interesting to see the -if- statement in your logit regression. Is it -if dropouts==1-? If I understand correctly, your procedure is - generate random variable for sorting - run logistic regression on a (random) subsample of your data, which excludes all observations that have been used in previous iterations - generate predicted values for _all_ observations in the dataset. First, whenever you work with random numbers, you should set the random number seed in order to make your results reproducible: set seed 123 for example. Next, it seems perfectly sufficient to save the estimation result during the loop. You can use estimates store iteration`i' within your loop, and then generate predicted values as and if you need them: estimates for iteration723 : predict onehat723 See -help estimates-. Do you really want to generate 1000 variables with predicted values? If you tell us what you ultimately want to achive, we might be able to suggest something more suitable. It looks as if you are doing a simulation exercise of some sort; there might be a more direct way.
