Hi everyone

I am new in this listing. I was hoping someone could help me with the
following problem. In stata 8 when using "set seed" before the
"sample" command I do not seem to be able to replicate the results in
the regression below which tells me I am not getting the same
subsample. any clues?

My code is :

sort family;
set seed 29384;

by family: sample 50 if (Nadse==2 & Nfam==2);

regress visit ins age age2 , robust ;
The initial -sort- might be your problem. See the help for -sort-. You probably want to add the -stable- option to -sort-.
