Simulation design for the simulation studies – predictor variables

Predictor variables


X1

~N(0, 1)

X2

~M(2)

X3

~M(4)

X4

~M(10)

X5

~M(20)


The predictor variables are sampled independently from the following distributions. N(0, 1) stands for the standard normal distribution, M(k) stands for the multinomial distribution with values in {0,..., k - 1} and equal probabilities (discrete uniform distribution on {0,..., k - 1}), B(p) stands for the binomial distribution (Bernoulli distribution) with probability p, thus M(2) equals B(0.5).
