Binary system (Mathematics)
Correlated binary data occur when measurements of two or more dichotomous response variables are taken on the same experimental unit. This type of data arises frequently in the medical and statistical literature. The need for methods to analyze and simulate such data is obvious and has attracted substantial interest in the last few years. Procedures have been presented which attempt to simulate random binary variables with predetermined marginal expectations and pair-wise dependence structures. The scope of this thesis is to investigate these attempts, explore their limitations, and suggest modifications to them.
