Simulating Data from a Binomial Distribution Using JMP Suppose we want to simulate results from a binomial distribution with a specified number of trials (n) and probability of success (p). Think back to the stoplight data. In the first week (M-F), how many green lights do we observe? How about the next week? If we want to simulate a month’s worth, or six months worth or years worth of weekly green light data, how would we do it? For this problem, we know n (5) and we know p (.40). We can set up a worksheet in JMP that does this for us. Note: See simulatebin.jmp on Scholar for the finished file. Directions: (1) Open JMP and select New Data Table. (2) Double click on the header for Column 1. Name this something meaningful, like GreenLights. (3) Double click on the worksheet header (Untitled) and name it something meaningful, like SimulationWksht. (4) Click on the red triangle next to the worksheet title, SimulationWksht. Select New Property/Script. (5) Name the script Refresh. In the script area, type GreenLights<<eval formula
