Hello Steve, Thanks a lot for your suggestions. I appreciate your time and effort. Here is an issue: 1. I am using panel data and I found that xtreg is not supported by suest 2. If I use the previous code (as was suggested by you earlier) and create uhatmain as a temporary variable, I get the following error: **************************************** bootstrap ratio1 =r(ratio1) , reps(100)cluster(hhidpn) idcluster(newhhid) nowarn : my_xtboot (running my_xtboot on estimation sample) : variable uhatmain not found an error occurred when bootstrap executed my_xtboot **************************************** Best, Meenakshi ________________________________ Meenakshi Beri Graduate Teaching Assistant Department of Economics Wayne State University dy5651@wayne.edu ---------------------------------------- > Subject: st: Re: st: Re: st: Re: st: RE: Ratio of coefficients from two regressions and standard error. > From: sjsamuels@gmail.com > Date: Sun, 4 Dec 2011 10:51:31 -0500 > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > > 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. > > > On Dec 4, 2011, at 1:39 AM, meenakshi beri wrote: > > Thanks a lot!

Maarten's suggestion: use a temporary variable.

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).
