However if I may re-attempt to explain, essentially I have a do-file created with the help of Statlist contributors that performs bi-variate regressions, sorts the independent variables by t-score and removes those below a certain threshold. It then runs a Dfuller test and further removes variables that do not pass the critical level, and finally there is code that essentially removes any variables that have blanks. I would like to be able to learn of a way to then take this output and sort the resulting variables by t-score, then keep only the 72 variables with the highest t-score, and run a sw regress with those variables. My current code is below. Again, I sincerely apologize for being unclear and would appreciate any feedback but understand if I do not receive any. Also Nick, I assume you do not have the time to go into the spuriousness of the above process, but if you were able to direct me to a certain chapter in a well known stats text, or even an online resource I would be quite thankful, however I fully understand it is not your role.
