Generating Correlated Data Sets
by Robert M. Lynch.
Techniques using Common Elements Correlation to generate correlated data sets are described. Two illustrations are provided. The first
describes a simple process to produce a data set for two variables with a specified correlation. The second illustrates the creation of a larger
dataset for a three variable correlation matrix with specified correlations. Positive and negative correlations are considered.
