The dropped variables are probably the result of the bootstrap drawing "by accident" no observations for those individuals. In terms of the Stata command -bootstrap- this would mean that you'd probably have to specify the -cluster- and -idcluster()- options and change your estimation command accordingly. However, -sqreg- does not allow these options. So unfortunately the answer is that this model is not implemented in Stata unless you program it yourself.
