st: How to generate a random variable with PDF gamma(a,b,g,x) |

Dear Statalisters, I would like to generate a gamma random variable with probability density function given by gamma(a,b,g,x) where a = 3 (shape), b = 0.04 (scale), g = 0.80 (location). I believe that the trick is to generate x correctly from a uniform distribution, since I am looking at x>g only. The pdf should look like this: http://tinypic.com/r/5yrxgg/7 Any suggestions? All the best, Tiago * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
