If that's a real survey, it will at the minimum have clusters/PSUs and
strata, and you need to account for these, too. For the survey
bootstrap to work, you need to specify the bootstrap replicate weights
-- you specified one variable, so you had one bootstrap replicate
(that was actually the same as the original data). I suggested to you
to use the bootstrap weights created by the -bsweights- command
described in my Stata Journal article in 10 (2), see
http://stata-journal.com/article.html?article=st0187.
