I'm trying to simulate trend data over a five year period. I want different trend profiles...the simplest being a linear trend. I've been using the following code:  

patBdta1 <- NULL

for(i in 1:100)

patBdta1 <- rbind(patBdta1,c(yr1= mean(rbinom(50,1,.50)),

                             yr2 =mean(rbinom(50,1,.51)),

                             yr3 =mean(rbinom(50,1,.52)),

                             yr4 =mean(rbinom(50,1,.53)),

                             yr5 =mean(rbinom(50,1,.54))))


This code creates 100 data sets each with a 5 yr binomial trend profile with a slope of approximately .01.  

Now, what I want to do is pass this code (or some code) in such a way that I can simulate various trend slopes (i.e., pass in a loop or vectorize vs. copying/repeating code for each slope).  

Any guidance is much appreciated. Thanks!
