I wonder if something like this is what you are trying to do: sysuse auto.dta bootstrap _b[mpg]: stepwise, pr(0.1) lockterm1: regress price mpg rep78 headroom trunk weight length turn displacement gear_ratio (running stepwise on estimation sample) Bootstrap replications (50) ----+--- 1 ---+--- 2 ---+--- 3 ---+--- 4 ---+--- 5 .................................................. 50 Bootstrap results Number of obs = 69 Replications = 50 command: stepwise, pr(0.1) lockterm1 : regress price mpg rep78 headroom trunk weight length turn displacement gear_ratio _bs_1: _b[mpg] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ | Observed Bootstrap Normal-based | Coef. Std. Err. z P>|z| [95% Conf. Interval] -------------+---------------------------------------------------------------- _bs_1 | -106.7122 94.63724 -1.13 0.259 -292.1978 78.77339 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ if you are interested in the effect of mpg on price, then you would need to lock this term since each run of the stepwise procedure on the bootstrapped sample would give you a different set of terms that meet the stepwise criteria and the effect of interest, in this example, mpg, would not be guaranteed to be in every sample Tim On Sat, Mar 21, 2009 at 5:51 PM, aegl <aegl@orange.fr> wrote: > Hello, > > I need to run a logistic regression including several X variables .
