Thanks a lot for your answer!! I have also tried to perform a SUREG by introducing 
the three sets of weights generated by the rreg command but I realized that it was not 
possible. As you mention I would have to combine them somehow. However it is for me
not clear how to combine them. An arithmetic average is definitely not appropriate. I was
wondering if it would not be more appropriate to proceed as described hereafter. In a first step, 
on the basis of each robust regression performed, I determine outliers (i.e. observations under a 
certain threshold in terms of weight height). In a second step I exclude these outliers from the data set 
and  then perform the SUR regression. I am however not really satisfied with this solution.

You could use the -genwt- option in -rreg- to generate the weights
used in the robust regression, then use those weights in -sureg-. You
will have three sets of weights from your first three regressions, and
- -sureg- will only allow a set of weights, so you would have to combine
them somehow.
