```I took a look and noticed some problems:

1. You need to post the missing coefficients. The loops that calculate
the elasticities are looking for coefficients a13, b13, g131 ...,
which are not calculated in the regression directly. To do that, this
should get you going. Run this code after the regression:

* Post the missing coefficients
forv i=1(1)13 {
forv j=1(1)13 {
glo l`i'`j' = cond(`i'<=`j',`i'`j',`j'`i')
}
}
forv i=1(1)12 {
glo com "\${com} (a`i': _b[/a`i']) (b`i': _b[/b`i'])"
forv j=1(1)12 {
glo com "\${com} (g`i'`j': _b[/g\${l`i'`j'}])"
}
}
forv i=1(1)12 {
glo com "\${com} (g`i'13: -_b[/g\${l`i'1}] -_b[/g\${l`i'2}] -
_b[/g\${l`i'3}] - _b[/g\${l`i'4}] - _b[/g\${l`i'5}] - _b[/g\${l`i'6}] -
_b[/g\${l`i'7}] - _b[/g\${l`i'8}] - _b[/g\${l`i'9}] - _b[/g\${l`i'10}] -
_b[/g\${l`i'11}] - _b[/g\${l`i'12}] )"
}

nlcom \${com} (a13:1-_b[/a1]-_b[/a2]-_b[/a3]-_b[/a4]-_b[/a5]-_b[/a6]-_b[/a7]-_b[/a8]-_b[/a9]-_b[/a10]-_b[/a11]-_b[/a12]
) (b13:-_b[/b1]-_b[/b2]-_b[/b3]-_b[/b4]-_b[/b5]-_b[/b6]-_b[/b7]-_b[/b8]-_b[/b9]-_b[/b10]-_b[/b11]-_b[/b12])
///
(g131:-_b[/g\${l11}] - _b[/g\${l21}] -_b[/g\${l31}] -_b[/g\${l41}] -
_b[/g\${l51}] - _b[/g\${l61} - _b[/g\${l71} - _b[/g\${l81} - _b[/g\${l91} -
_b[/g\${l101} - _b[/g\${l111} - _b[/g\${l121} ] ) ///
(g132:-_b[/g\${l12}] - _b[/g\${l22}] -

..... FILL THIS PART

(g1313:-_b[/g\${l113}] - _b[/g\${l213}] , noheader post

2. Your calls to coefficients are wrong. If after the regression you
type -matrix list e(b)- you will notice that the coefficients are
_b[/a1], _b[/a2], etc ... However, the previous code for posting the
missing coefficients is also changing the names from /a1 to a1 ...
etc, so you don't need to change that in the elasticities code if you
run the posting code first.

3. You still have not completely changed the QAIDS for AIDS formulas

glo mu`i'`j' "_b[g`i'`j'] - \${mu`i'}*(_b[a`j']
\${gsum2`j'})-_b[l`i']*_b[b`j']/\${bp}*(lnexpmean - (\${ap}))^2"

The quadratic part at the end should not be there.

Hope this helps.

But I have been stuck with computing the corresponding elastities for a while now. As my programming skills are not that great, I was not able to quite get to the problem so I thought of posting the problem again.
