Try this,

findit rnd
help rnd

It can generate binomially distributed random numbers

Random number generators

         Student's t:   rndt obs df

          Chi-square:   rndchi obs df

                   F:   rndf obs df_n df_d

          log normal:   rndlgn obs mean var

             Poisson:   rndpoi obs mean
                        rndpoix [ mu ]

            binomial:   rndbin obs prob numb
                        rndbinx [ prob ] den

Hope it helps...

Hi all,
I need to generate a sample from scratch: 150 observations following a binomial
distribution with p=10% chance of success.
Which command should I use? Any suggestions about references I could use? I had
no luck with the stata help.
Thank you,
