Re: st: Random number
On second thought, probably not.
My example code generates rndyear on the endpoints about half as often
as interior years. If you want rndyear to be randomly distributed as
an integer on the interval [Min,Max] then you can:
as shown in this example:
range id 1 200000 200000
tab ril if dy==10
di "Percent should be close to 10%"
tab r2 if dy==10
di "Endpoints p=" %3.2f 100/18 ", interior p=" %3.2f 100/9
