Abstract: 
We discuss methods for calculating multivariate normal probabilities by simulation and two new Stata programs for this purpose: mvdraws for deriving draws from the standard uniform density using either Halton or pseudo-random sequences, and an egen function mvnp() for calculating the probabilities themselves. Several illustrations show how the programs may be used for maximum simulated likelihood estimation.
