Hi there,

Thanks in advance for your time.

I have a question regarding the reproducibility of the results for the
programs with a bootstrap command inside.

To be concrete, I was using Scott Merryman's cqreg2 (below are the
codes copied from

The program calls -bsqreg- to obtain s.e.. However, every time running
the program gives (slightly) different results. Adding "set seed ####"
into the program itself doesn't seem to help. I was wondering what
could we do in this situation. I'd appreciate your help.

reps(integer  100) save(string) grqreg]

tempvar yhat

local lhs "`1'"

qui {
qreg `lhs' `rhs' `if', q(`quantile')

predict `yhat'
sum `hat'

while  r(min) < `ll' {
	keep if  `yhat' >= `ll'
	qui qreg `lhs' `rhs' `if', quantile(`quantile' )
	qui drop `yhat'
	predict `yhat' if e(sample)
	qui sum `yhat' if e(sample)
if "`bs'" == "bs" {
	bsqreg `lhs' `rhs' `if', quantile(`quantile' ) reps(`reps')
else {
if "`grqreg'" != "" {
	grqreg, ci
if "`save'" != "" {
	disp ""
	save "`save'", replace
