Thanks Martin. What if the dice were non-transitive? Is that where -simulate- comes into play in order to generate the roll outcomes? Say something like: Dice 1: 1, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4 so 4 is 5/6 and 1 is 1/6 Rick On Fri, Feb 20, 2009 at 3:17 PM, Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> wrote: > <> > Normally, one would use -simulate- but this is more easily accomplished as > > ********* clear* > set obs 10000 > g firstdice=1+int(6*runiform()) > g seconddice=1+int(6*runiform()) > g sumofdice=firstdice+seconddice > *let`s see whether CIs conform to our idea of unbiased dice > prop sum > ********** > > where you can edit the obs to the # of replications you want... > > HTH > Martin _______________________ > ----- Original Message ----- From: "William Bishop" <wbishopco@gmail.com> > To: <statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu> > Sent: Saturday, February 21, 2009 12:08 AM > Subject: st: basic monte carlo simulation > > >> Trying to create a monte carlo simulation for throwing a pair of dice >> with 6-sides, numbered 1-6 (each side equally likely, thus 1/6).
