Yes. I would proceed as follows: gen group=yourvariable recode group (11/13=1) (21/23=2) (31/33=3) sort group <---not sure this is needed set seed ******* <---pick a number, so you can reproduce results by group: sample 25, count makes it give you a sample of 25 units for each group, without count it will sample 25% of each group. I think this'll work to give you the samples you need. Hope this helps.
