Dear listers,

    please test the following code:

    clear
    set obs 1000
    gen x = uniform()
    egen pc = pc(x)


sum

    Variable |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+--------------------------------------------------------
           x |      1000    .5019275     .291899   .0007097   .9980542
          pc |      1000          .1    .0581556   .0001414   .1988443


the above code generate a variable "pc", which is distributed between 0 and
.20, i do not know why? as the help file told me that the new variable
should be between 0 and 100.

Can you tell me the reason? is it a bug of stata?

thanks

Levy
