Abstract [en]

A data-swapping technique based on ranks for generating synthetic data sets suitable for dissemination is presented. The method is mainly intended to be applied to quantative data down to at least an ordinal scale although it should be applicable in other cases as well. Generalizations and variations of the proposed method are briefly discussed. The expected performance is investigated by means of simulation studies and an analytical result is stated. The results from the simulations studies indicate that the proposed method performs reasonably well in the bivariate normal case when the correlation coefficient is used as the measure of association between pairs of variables.
