st: A loop for each couple of variables (instead of for each variable) |

Hi, I created a loop in order to estimate various specifications of my model foreach variables in ""var_1 var_2 { reg dep_var control_var `variables’ } Now, I would like to run this loop not for two variables but for two locals that comprises two variables. I tried the following code. local local_1 “var_1 var_2” local local_2 “var_3 var_4” foreach local_variables in ""`local_1’ ` var_2’ { reg dep_var control_var `local_variables’ } But it does not work because during the loop Stata splits my local into two variables… Do you think that it is possible to estimate a loop for each couple of variables instead of for each variable? How can I do this? Thank you.
