Hi Danny, your most easy option is to follow Jeph's second suggestion. That is, run your estimation once on the full sample. Then use - matrix b = e(b) - and then simply re-use the same matrix as starting

You'll probably have to check whether this increases estimation speed

Thank you so much for the answer Jeph. However, I do not know how to write the code as mentioned in your reply. If you can give me further insight that would be really helpful. Thanks once again.

So after calling xtprobit, save the matrix e(b) and then use it with the -from(b)- option. xtprobit ... matrix b=e(b) xtprobit ...., from(b) But to do this, I think you'll have to write your own bootstrap code (not too difficult). Or you may get by with using -bootstrap:-, if you reuse the same matrix for each bootstrap.

Reduction in the number of replications (reps()) is of no help. Please let me know.
