Dear Austin, many thanks for your helpful hints. I have just modified your syntax (too advanced for me) in order to approach my ultimate goal, that is calculating, for each one of the 10,000 iterations, how many times ICER_round*Delta_Q was > Delta_C (please, see below). I was not absolutely clear on this point in my previous messages as it was a subsequent thought of mine. Once again I would like to express my grateful thankfulness to Austin, Ben, Johannes, and Martin (in alphabetical order) for their support and for having increased my poor skills about Stata programming. This experience makes me think that the famous Bayesian saying "today's posterior will be tomorrow's prior" applies very well when it comes to knowledge improvement that can be obtained from more experienced Statalisters. Thanks a lot again and Kind Regards, Carlo g double d=.
