<> John, apologies, I didn't actually write a myprobit before sending the post, so I guessed about what the variable names after simulation will be from my previous simulations. It turns out that they would be _b_x1 and _b_x2, not y_b_x1 and y_b_x2 (same for standard deviations). Therefore, just drop the leading y everywhere in the loop, and everything should work fine. Here is a working example. **************** matrix mean = 2,2 matrix sd = 1,4 matrix corr = 1,0.5\0.5,1 capture program drop myprobit program myprobit drop _all set obs 1000 drawnorm x1 x2, mean(mean) sd(sd) corr(corr) cstorage(full) gen eps = rnormal(0,1) gen ystar = 5+3*x1-2*x2+eps gen y = normal(ystar)>0.5 probit y x1 x2 end simulate _b _se, reps(50) seed(123) : myprobit foreach v in x1 x2 { gen t_`v' = _b_`v'/_se_`v' gen p_`v' = 2*(1-normal(abs(t_`v'))) } ***************** Hope this helps, Eva Eva 2009/5/10 John Antonakis <john.antonakis@unil.ch>: > Hi Eva: > > Working with your solution first--it seems to be simple to use.
