Hello everyone,
I want to randomly split a data set of 800 or so observations into two groups, with 1/3rd of observations in the first group and 2/3rds in the second group, and am blanking on how to do this. Can anyone help?

Besides the other suggestions, check out Nick Cox's -swor- command, available from SSC.
