You are welcome. After re-reading's Maarten's post, I recommend that you use temporary scalars (via -tempname-) and variables throughout the program, not permanent ones. Here the -bootstrap- automatically takes care of the cross-equation correlations. Many people would use -suest- for doing this. There are several advantages: 1) you can debug a complex program before -bootstrapping it; 2) you don't need to create scalars; 3) the equation names and coefficient names are used in the definition of the returned scalars, so there's less possibility of a mix-up. Here's the -suest- version. ********************************* program myboot, rclass reg trunk length estimates store m1 reg weight length estimates store m2 suest m1 m2 return scalar ratio = /// [m2_mean]length/[m1_mean]length end *********************************** The disadvantage is that -suest- cannot handle commands, like -stcox- that do not create a score variable for each observation.

Maarten's suggestion: use a temporary variable. Or, drop "uhatmain" at the end of the program. > > Also drop all created scalars at the end of the program with a -scalar drop- statement; otherwise those from the last replicate will hang around. > > > > Steve > > > > > > On Dec 3, 2011, at 11:20 PM, meenakshi beri wrote: > > Hello Steve, > > Thanks for your reply and teaching me the way to estimate the ratio and standard error. I am using the same code (after modifying it as per panel data needs and multiple ratios needs) given by you, but I have been struggling with this insufficient observations error (otherwise my regressions are running fine without bootstrap). I have generated new identifier cluster variable also for the > bootstrapped panels, as well as generated the new time variable also (whatever information I got using previously existing statalist answers for such a situation, I tried that but nothing worked).
