# Draw binary data with fixed intra-cluster correlation.

Data is generated to ensure inter-cluster correlation 0, intra-cluster correlation in expectation ICC. Algorithm taken from Hossein, Akhtar. "ICCbin: An R Package Facilitating Clustered Binary Data Generation, and Estimation of Intracluster Correlation Coefficient (ICC) for Binary Data".

draw_binary_icc(prob = 0.5, N = NULL, clusters, ICC = 0)

## Arguments

prob | A number or vector of numbers, one probability per cluster. If none is provided, will default to 0.5. |
---|---|

N | (Optional) A number indicating the number of observations to be generated. Must be equal to length(clusters) if provided. |

clusters | A vector of factors or items that can be coerced to clusters; the length will determine the length of the generated data. |

ICC | A number indicating the desired |

## Value

A vector of binary numbers corresponding to the observations from the supplied cluster IDs.
