These are some preconfigured generation components and all wrappers around sim_gen
and sim_gen_cont
.

sim_gen_ec(simSetup, mean = 0, sd = 150, name = "e", nCont = 0.05,
type = "unit", areaVar = "idD", fixed = TRUE)

simSetup 
a 
mean 
the mean passed to the random number generator, for example

sd 
the standard deviation passed to the random number generator, for example rnorm. 
name 
name of variable as character in which random numbers are stored. 
nCont 
gives the number of contaminated observations. Values between 0
and 1 will be treated as probability. If type is 'unit' and length is
larger than 1, the expected length is the number of areas. If type is
'area' and length is larger than 1 the values are interpreted as area
positions; i.e. 
type 
"unit" or "area"  unit or arealevel contamination. 
areaVar 
character with variable name(s) identifying areas. 
fixed 
TRUE fixes the observations which will be contaminated. FALSE will result in a random selection of observations or areas. 
x
: fixedeffect component; e
: modelerror; ec
: contaminated model error; v
: randomeffect (error constant for each domain); vc
contaminated randomeffect. Note that for contamination you are expected to add both, a noncontaminated component and a contaminated component.
