Dear Adrian, as far as the second part of your question is concerned (Then...Stata??), I would suggest you to take a look at -help corr2data- (please, consider that I work with Stata 9.2/SE). Kind Regards, Carlo -----Messaggio originale----- Da: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Per conto di Adrian de la Garza Inviato: domenica 30 marzo 2008 20.30 A: statalist Oggetto: st: generating random correlated variables I would like to simulate some data and I'd like to know if I can do this with Stata. For instance, suppose I have the following equations: y = 5x + u x = 2z + e and I randomly generate u and y and solve for x in the first equation. Then I'd like to create e such that the correlation between u and e is 0.5, and generate z such that u and z are uncorrelated. Can I do this in Stata? Thank you!!
