I''m not sure what Kramer is unable to suppress, but this problem can be solved with much less code, I think:

clear all
set obs 100
g schl = _n
g u = runiform()
sort u
egen dist = cut(u), group(10)
g v = runiform()
sort v
drop u v

void district() {
	real matrix distmat
	st_view(d, ., "dist")
	distmat = J(rows(d),rows(d),0)
	for(i=1; i<=rows(d); i++) {
		for(j=1; j<i; j++) {
			distmat[i,j] = (d[i]==d[j])
	st_matrix("distmat", distmat)

mata: district()
l schl dist
mat list distmat
