Correlations of discretized variables

The function computes the correlation matrix of the $k$ variables, with given marginal distributions, derived discretizing a $k$-variate standard normal variable with given correlation matrix

Keywords
models, distribution, htest, datagen
Usage
contord(marginal, Sigma, support = list(), Spearman = FALSE)
Arguments
marginal
a list of $k$ elements, where $k$ is the number of variables. The $i$-th element of marginal is the vector of the cumulative probabilities defining the marginal distribution of the $i$-th component of the multivariate variable. If the $i$-th component h
Sigma
the correlation matrix of the standard multivariate normal variable
support
a list of $k$ elements, where $k$ is the number of variables. The $i$-th element of support contains the ordered values of the support of the $i$-th variable. By default, the support of the $i$-th variable is $1,2,...,k_i$
Spearman
if TRUE, the function finds Spearman's correlations (and it is not necessary to provide support), if FALSE (default) Pearson's correlations
Value

  • the correlation matrix among the discretized variables

Examples
# consider 4 discrete variables
k<-4
# with these marginal distributions
marginal<-list(0.4,c(0.3,0.6),c(0.25,0.5,0.75),c(0.1,0.2,0.8,0.9))
# generated discretizing a multivariate standard normal variable
# with correlation matrix
Sigma<-matrix(0.6,4,4)
diag(Sigma)<-1
# the resulting correlation matrix for the discrete variables is
contord(marginal,Sigma)
# note all the correlations are smaller than the original 0.6
# change Sigma, adding a negative correlation
