They can be eiher Stata variables (a waste of >space) or scalars or local macros. 1. What is the reason behind the use of the linear predictor (-xb-) to obtain 'index' values? 2. Why the -uniform()- to generate random numbers? I know it's a latent LHS variable, but don't we want 'deterministic' results? 3. What 'Stata variables' do you mean as vlaues for coefficients? Two days ago, Nick Cox suggested a similar approach for -mlogit- (comments added): qui forval i = 1/`e(k_cat)' { predict ypb_`i', outcome(`i') xb /* NOTE -xb- ! */ replace ypb_`i' = exp(ypb_`i') } Are the Al's and Nick's approach identical (apart from different amount of outcomes)? For any clarifications I would be grateful, Daniel -----Original Message----- From: Sherry Weitzen [mailto:Sherry_Weitzen@brown.edu] Sent: Thursday, November 21, 2002 3:56 PM To: STATALIST Subject: st: simulating data I feel very naive.. I'd like to simulate data from a logistic model with several independent variables (including a treatment variable and several confounders). I have no idea where to start. Please advise. thank you.
