Fake Data for a Time-Series

Description

This is a toy (i.e. "fake") data set created by the fabricatr package. There are 100 observations. The outcome y is a linear function of 20 + (.25 * year) + .(25 * x1) + (1 * x2) + e. This clearly implies some autocorrelation in the data. I.e. it's a time-series.

Usage

fakeTSD


Format

A data frame with 100 observations on the following 5 variables.

year

the year

y

an outcome

x1

a continuous variable

x2

a binary variable

e

randomly generated errors

Details

Errors are random-normal with a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1. x1 is generated by a normal distribution with a mean of 5 and a standard deviation of 2. x2 is drawn from a Bernoulli distribution with a probability of .5 of observing a 1.
