Hi all, I hope you can help me with the following questions: I am running random samples in stata 9 using the command sample. If i close the program, open the database again and then run the sample again, the "random" sample is the same as the first time i gave stata the instruction. Is it really a random sample? Is it ok to use it to make inference in to the population? What is the algorith used to draw the sample? Thank you very much in advance, as always!
