thanks, Laura On Tue, 4 Jun 2013, Steve Samuels wrote:

I should also point out that your procedure assumes that the number of observations on an individual and, perhaps, the order of individual observations are uninformative about the study outcomes ("perhaps", because you might already have included sequence information among the predictors). S. Laura: The coefficients reported after -bootstrap- will be the coefficients for from -regress- on the full sample. You want the mean of the coefficients from the -bootstrap- samples. You can get these with: . estat bootstrap, all . matrix list e(b_bs) Throwing out data can be inefficient. As you have nested observations, you might try -xtmixed- with robust standard errors and compare the results.

If a person has 7 observations, the sample will consist of 7 observations for that person; the difference with the original dataset is that it will be a sample with replacement, i.e., repeated observations might be present. For my purposes, since I want my samples per individual have size 1, I need to specify that as follows: bootstrap, strata(id) size(1): regress...On Fri, 31 May 2013, Laura Gibbons wrote:I have data with 1 to 7 observations/person. I want to randomly sample one observation/person in some sort of a bootstrapping process to get an appropriate error term for, say, x. I can set this up myself using a loop around the -bsample- command [bsample 1, strata(id)], posting the estimated coefficient for x each sample and taking the std dev of the mean of x for my 1000 times through the loop. Is there a way to do this directly in -bootstrap-? Here is what the manual says about the strata option there: strata(varlist) specifies the variables that identify strata. If this option is specified, bootstrap samples are taken independently within each stratum. It is not clear to me what that means. Does it mean it will sample once from each stratum? I think not, based on my results, but I honestly can't tell. Many thanks, Laura ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Laura E.
