Dear Statalisters,

I would like to compare the results of a 10,000-size vector non-parametric
bootstrap simuation performed on the difference of two samples of healthcare
costs drawn at patient-level with the results of a Monte Carlo simulation on
the same dataset.
My main aim would be to detect, if any, the difference between sampling with
and without reintroduction.

Is there any way with Stata 9 to perform a non-parametric Monte Carlo
simulation or should I impose a given distribution (uniform? log normal?)on
the original data set before starting the simulation? 

Thanks a lot for Your Kindness and for Your Time.

Kind Regards,

Carlo
