BOOTTEST: Stata module to provide fast execution of the wild bootstrap with null imposed
David Roodman ()
Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics
boottest is a post-estimation command that offers fast execution of the wild bootstrap (Wu 1986) with null imposed, as recommended by Cameron, Gelbach, and Miller (2008) for estimates with clustered standard errors and few clusters. It also performs the “score bootstrap” (Kline and Santos 2012), which adapts the wild approach to Maximum Likelihood estimators. Two wrappers, waldtest and scoretest, give easy access to the classical Wald (1943) and Rao (1948) score/Lagrange multiplier tests. boottest works after regress, cnsreg, ivreg, ivregress, ivreg2 and most Stata ML-based estimation commands. boottest offers inference based on multi-way clustering after many Stata estimation commands that do not otherwise support it. When bootstrapping, it offers a choice of Rademacher, Mammen (1993), Webb (2014), and standard normal weights. boottest requires Stata version 11.2 or later and runs fastest in version 13 or later.
