You note that to use the mean age it is sufficient to -generate- a variable containing the mean age. True, but that is certainly not necessary. Consider this code (assuming _b[age] is available): su age, meanonly gen meanage = r(mean) gen x = _b[age] * meanage But you can do this instead su age, meanonly gen x = _b[age] * r(mean) What I also see (a lot) is something like egen meanage = mean(meanage) This probably looks natural enough, but it is very inefficient. But you could go further: as _b[age] * r(mean) is yet another constant, it can be manipulated as such; there is no need to put it in a variable. I've not got a good grasp on your overall problem but it seems that it may reduce to looping over models and just keeping track of _b[age] from -regress- and r(mean) from -summarize- without needing to calculate that many variabes at all.
