Something like this?


clear
set obs 5
gen id = _n
expand 5
sort id

bys id: gen order = _n
gen chosen = 0
levelsof id, local(levels)
foreach l of local levels {
        if runiform() < .5 {  //probability that id is chosen
        local a = round(1 +4*runiform(),1)
        qui replace chosen= 1 if order ==  `a' & id == `l' //1 of 5
alternatives is chosen

        }
}
drop order
l
