I have a question on how to make a new variable from an original
variable in a way that the new variable has the same mean but a
I am using SAS in computer simulation and I am trying to simulate cases
when a population is exposed to different environments and each
environment is changing the variance with different magnitude.
Basically, causing environmental "noise" in the original variable. Now
If variable A is a set of data for all individuals of a population with
mean = m and variance = S. Is there a function in SAS that I can use to
create a new variable (B) in a way that B is derived from A and has mean
= m and variance = S+e.
