Thank you very much for the suggestion, I will look again at cmp. The
point of this is to use interviewer effects for selection. There are
some alternative approaches, however they all involve a similar two
step procedure which would require a similar bootstrap for the
standard errors. I have added weights to the program commands, however
I must still be omitting something else. Error: "last estimates not
found" Any further thoughts would be appreciated.

webuse nmihs_bs
svyset _n [pweight=finwgt], bsrweight(bsrw1-bsrw5) vce(bootstrap)
singleunit(missing)

program define test1, eclass properties(svyb)
syntax [if] [pw iw] [, NULLOPT]
xi:reg age race [`weight'`exp']
capture drop re1
predict re1
xi:reg birthwgt re1 [`weight'`exp']
ereturn local cmd="test1"
end

svy : test1

Regards,

Mark
