Hi Statalist

I am running quantile regressions with a continuous dependent variable
and have a challenge

On the issue of quantile IVs based on 2SQR, my understanding is that I
need to run an OLS with my endogenous variable as the dependent
variable and the instruments together with the other exogenous
aggressors as independent variables. I will then predict from the
first stage and then plug it into the structural equation and then
bootstrap the standard errors to take care of possible bias in the
standard errors of the predicted variable. Will I be right if I do
this and is this the same as what is proposed by Amemiya (1982) and
Powell (1983)

Secondly, my data was collected via stratified sampling (ie.
clustering). This means that using the normal bootstrapping will not
correct for the intra-cluster correlations. Instead a cluster robust
bootstrapping will be adequate. However the qreg, bsqreg and sqreg
commands in stata seem not to work when I specify the vce cluster
option for bootstrap. Please can someone help on this?

Can you help me on this. Thank you very much
