Hi Martin:Thanks for the reply and the code! You are so helpful with everyone andalways seem to be able to find an elegant solution! As an aside, what is anice resource to learn how to program nicely in Stata?I made a mistake in the 3), which you noticed.So, this was 2)--(I am only putting one space after each entry so that theformatting doesn't get too messed up):i g y x z 1 1 6.5 10 4.5 1 2 7.5 9.5 4.5 2 1 7.3 9.3 4.3 2 2 7.3 8 6.7 3 1 5 7 2 3 2 8.5 11 6Now for 3), I want to put the data in such as way as to be able to regressthe y of the first observation in each cluster on the x and z of thesecond observation in each clusteri y x z 1 6.5 9.5 4.5 2 7.3 8 6.7 3 5 11 6 Thank you very much for your help.

I wouldlike to define it as an e-class program so that I can easily incorporatea simulation in there.I have the following data structure (I have added a line in-betweenclusters to facilitate viewing):i y x z n 1 5 8 3 1 1 9 10 5 2 1 8 12 6 3 1 6 9 4 4 2 5 7 2 1 2 9 13 4 2 2 8 8 7 3 2 6 8 6 4 2 8 8 7 5 2 8 8 7 6 3 5 7 2 1 3 9 11 7 2 3 8 11 5 3Where y is the dependent variable, and x and z are covariates (note, Ihave more covariates, so I would like to use something general thatworks even with more covariates), "i" is the panel identifier and "n" isnumber of observations in each cluster. Note that each cluster does nothave the same number of observationsI would like to do the following:1) by cluster (i.e., within in each cluster), randomly split theobservations into two groups, with an equal amount of observations (ifnumber of observations are even); if the number of observations are odd,then one of the group will have 1 more observation than the other. Thus,I would now have this:i y x z n g 1 8 12 6 3 1 1 5 8 3 1 1 1 6 9 4 4 2 1 9 10 5 2 2 2 9 13 4 2 1 2 5 7 2 1 1 2 8 8 7 3 1 2 8 8 7 5 2 2 6 8 6 4 2 2 8 8 7 6 2 3 5 7 2 1 1 3 8 11 5 3 2 3 9 11 7 2 2 2) collapse observations at the group level for each cluster to get: i g y x z 1 1 6.5 10 4.5 1 2 7.5 9.5 4.5 2 1 7.3 9.3 4.3 2 2 7.3 8 6.7 3 1 5 7 2 3 2 8.5 11 63) then I want to the data as below, so that I can regress the y of thefirst observation in each cluster to the x and z of the secondobservation in each clusteri y x z 1 7.5 9.5 4.5 2 7.3 8 6.7 3 8.5 11 2 4) once I have this I want to simulate it, using something like this: capture program drop sim version 10.1 program define sim, eclass [here is the code I would like to insert to make points 1-4 above run] simulate _b _se, reps(20) seed (123) : sim, foreach v in x z { gen t_`v' = _b_`v'/_se_`v' gen p_`v' = 2*(1-normal(abs(t_`v'))) Thank you.
