*------------------ begin example ----------------------
use, clear
foreach var of varlist read ses write {
    sum `var' if !missing(read,ses,write)
    gen double z_`var' = (`var' - r(mean))/r(sd)

capture program drop indir
program define indir, rclass
	tempname b
	reg z_read z_ses
	scalar `b' = _b[z_ses]
	reg z_write z_read z_ses
	return scalar indir = _b[z_read]*`b'
bootstrap indir=r(indir), reps(1000): indir
estat bootstrap, bc p norm

qui sureg (z_read z_ses) (z_write z_read z_ses)
nlcom  [z_read]z_ses*[z_write]z_read
*--------------- end example ---------------------------
