Bootstrap in twins GxE model PreviousNext

I use the "model contraint" command to model a GxE interaction in a AE model.

I request bootstrap S.E. and confidence interval with 1000 replication.

But all the S.E. are equal 0.

What is the problem ?

I am running a GxE model with two dichotomous moderators, one is a grouping variable (m vs d), like this:

new(ma mc me mt mu mv da dc de dt du dv);

varm1=(ma+mt*sexodef)**2 + (mc+mu*sexodef)**2 + (me+mv*sexodef)**2 ;
varm2=(ma+mt*sexjdef)**2 + (mc+mu*sexjdef)**2 + (me+mv*sexjdef)**2 ;

mzmc=(ma+mt*sexodef)*(ma+mt*sexjdef) + (mc+mu*sexodef)*(mc+mu*sexjdef);
dzmc=0.5*(ma+mt*sexodef)*(ma+mt*sexjdef) + (mc+mu*sexodef)*(mc+mu*sexjdef);

(this syntax repeats for the second group with 'd' instead of 'm').

This model runs well. However, it appears that it is not possible to compare the ACE components between the groups (so: ma=da, mc=dc, me=de). Am I doing something wrong?
