<> What is your complaint, BTW? You get a red cross marker from -simulate- whenever one of the coefficients was dropped by -stepwise-. Which makes sense to me. What is " x1_count" and sister variable good for in your -program-? The high/low variables can be created as one-liners: ************* gen byte x1_high= _n > 177 ************* Have you thought about the interaction between the two -seed-s that you set?
