Hi all,

I wonder why I found no comments, help files, FAQs, list entries on
subsampling implemented in Stata. Isn't one of the
sampling-bootstrapping commands fit to that too? Is the sampling
without replacement the biggest difficulty?

I would have thought a simple option could have been added to
-bootstrap- long ago to achieve this.

Or am I overlooking another simple solution?

Here is why I think it would be good to have it:
"The bootstrap and subsampling are powerful techniques for
constructing confidence intervals. Subsampling works under weaker
conditions and relies on simpler theory."
