### [R] Latin hypercube sampling from a non-uniform distribution

Hello, I am performing a sensitivity analysis using a Latin Hypercube sampling. However, I have difficulty to draw a Hypercube sample for one variable. I?ve generated this variable from a Poisson distribution as follows: set.seed(5) mortality_probability <- round(ppois(seq(0, 7, by = 1), lambda = 0.9), 2) barplot(mortality_probability, names.arg = seq(0, 7, by = 1), xlab = "Age class", ylab = "Probability") How can I draw a Hypercube sample for the variable ?mortality_probability? so that this variable exhibits the same pattern as the observed distribution? Here is a reproducible code to draw Hypercube samples (my sensitivity analysis includes several parameters and the variables ?var1? and ?var2? follow a uniform distribution): library(lhs) set.seed(1) parm <- c("var1", "var2", "mortality_probability") X <- randomLHS(100, length(parm)) Any suggestions would be much welcome. Thanks for your time Marine [[alternative HTML version deleted]]

For example: q <- randomLHS(1000, 3) colnames(q) <- c("A", "B", "mort") q[, "mort"] <- qpois(q[,"mort"], 1.5) S Ellison ******************************************************************* This email and any attachments are confidential.
