This tip would be substantially strengthened if there was actual SAS code which could be pointed to to implement the approaches suggested. I seem to recall that there have been some publications about the weaknesses in the random numbers in SAS and my recollection is that different syntax uses different algorithms. It would be helpful if there were links to this background to substantiate the weaknesses in SAS. --Phil Miller (STATPROF) 13:10, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
