Hi to all,

I would like to generate 4 variables that contain a set of integers in a range from 40-100.
I would like to select the range per variable.
The total number of observations per variable would be 100.
Finally, I would like to create a categorical variable with 0 or 1.
The first 4 continuous variables, contain 50 values of category 0 and 50 of category 1:

id  var1  var2  var3 var4 var5cat

1   45    43     44     46    0
2   43    42     48     49    0
.............................
50   56     48    54     53    0

51   45    43     44    46    0
52   43    42      48   49    0
.............................
100   50     48    54     53   0

Thank you very much.

nick
