Hi 
As a new user of STATA can anyone point me in the right direction to run a series of simulations, say 50, 100, 1000, and 10,000 of the normal distribution and to find the confidence intervals and coverage probabilities of the simulated data?  I have managed to do this with the Poisson and binomial distributions but the simulation code for the normal distribution eludes me.  The help feature did not have any meaningful answers.

Thanks
