Hello Gurus:  

If I have a dataframe with one of the variables called "age" for example, and I want to extract a random 10% of the observations from each "age" group of the entire data frame. Do I have to double loop to split the data and then loop again to assign random numbers? Or is there a better way to do this?  

Thanks!
Karen
