You would want to read James Hardin's paper on sandwich estimator of
variance in Stata Journal 2 (3) -- see He showed how to
produce an analogue of -robust- calculation for generated regressors
that is asymptotically appropriate (and, to me, somewhat more
straightforward than Murphy-Topel). I imagine that by repeating his
calculations with sums over clusters rather than over observations,
you will get cluster-corrected standard errors for generated
regressors. You can use the bootstrap, too, but you need to make sure
you do it accurately -- see my paper on survey bootstrap a couple of
Stata Journals ago
