Dear Ali,
as far as my knowledge is concerned, the only examples of simulations with
Stata (9.2/SE version) are reported in - help simulate -, that you might
want to invoke from within Stata. 
Unfortunately, Stata textbooks entirely devoted to this topic haven't be
published, so far.
However, sticking to your query, performing a probabilistic sensitivity
analysis on the observed OR is straightforward with Stata. 

----------------------------begin example --------------------------------
sysuse nlsw88.dta
logistic union married 
set obs 10000
g Sens_OR= (.7800495 +.0863818 *invnorm(uniform()))
----------------------------end example --------------------------------

In the example sketched above you can draw 10,000 random values from the OR
sampling distribution by simply plugging in the observed OR and its standard

HTH and Kind Regards,

Oggetto: st: Simulation using Stata

Hello all:

Does anyone know if there is a book (or any other resource) that
introduces simulation and provides practical examples using Stata?
This is mainly for quantifying the impact of change in a particular
predictor of interest on the observed odds ratio or relative risk in a
regression model.

Thank you for your help,
