Dear all,

I want to bootstrap e.g. the gini coefficient with inequal7 in Stata8. In version 7 I used 
the command line

bs "inequal7 i11101" "S_4", reps(10)

and it worked.

Now the command line seems to have change for Stata8 as it should be

bs "command" exp_list [, reps(#)]

What I have tried is

bs "inequal7 i11101" S_4, reps(10)

Then Stata responds:
S_4 not found
error in statistic: S_4

I also tried

bs "inequal7 i11101" r(gini), reps(10)

and Stata responds:
type mismatch
error in statistic: r(gini)

Of course I could use 

version 7
bs "inequal7 i11101" "S_4", reps(10)

but isn't there a way to do it in Stata8?

Thank you very much for your help,

Katja Hoelsch
