sam.cor: Generate a Sample that Correlates with a Fixed Set of...

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

This function will generate a vector (y) with a known correlation to a given vector (x). The degree of correlation between x and y is determined by the parameter rho (the population correlation). Observed sample correlations between x and y will vary around rho, but this variation will decrease as the size of x increases.

Usage

1
sam.cor(x,rho)

Arguments

x

The given vector.

rho

Population correlation.

Value

The function prints the sample correlation for the specific set of numbers generated.

y

A vector of numbers correlated with x.
