Dear R helpers,
I have a var (let call X1) with approximately Normal distribution (say, mean=15, SD=5).
I want to generate a series of additional vars X2, X3, X4…such that the correlation between X2 and X1 is o.4, X3 and X1 is 0.5, X4 and X1 is 0.6 and so on with the condition all variables X2, X3, X4….have the same mean and SD with X1.
Any help should be appreciated
