Dear Statalisters:

I have a dataset with two variables, x and y.

I would like to generate a new artificial variable, z, with
pre-specified correlations with x and y (no particular distribution
required).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best,

Francisco.

P.D. I'm using Stata 11 (on Windows XP)
