Simulating Correlated Multivariate Nonnormal Distributions: Extending the Fleishman Power Method.
Headrick, Todd C.; Sawilosky, Shlomo S.
Psychometrika, v64 n1 p25-35 Mar 1999
Proposes a procedure for generating multivariate nonnormal distributions. The procedure, an extension of the Fleishman power method (A. Fleishman, 1978), generates the average value of intercorrelations much closer to population parameters than competing procedures for skewed and heavy tailed distributions and small sample sizes. Reports Monte Carlo results illustrating the procedure. (SLD)
