Basically, I want to select randomly within clusters, thencollapse, then estimate a regression model that I would like tosimulate. I would like to define it as an e-class program so thatI can easily incorporate a 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, I have more covariates, so I would like to use somethinggeneral that works even with more covariates), "i" is the panelidentifier and "n" is number of observations in each cluster. Notethat each cluster does not have 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(if number of observations are even); if the number of observationsare odd, then one of the group will have 1 more observation thanthe 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 ofthe first 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.
