int random(int min, int max)

The function random() returns a whole number between min and max. It is suitable for random draws with replacement. Examples of its use as part of a random draw can be found in the chapter Randomization.

  • min
    The smallest number allowed
  • max
    The largest number allowed

Note: Although one could create an experimental randomization via random(), we strongly recommend using a Random Generator. For more information about randomization an experimental groups see Randomization.

Warning: The random() function does not store the random number drawn in the data set. If you need the drawn number, please use a Random Generator or store the function in an internal variable using put().

Return Value

A whole number between min and max

min ≤ return value ≤ max
