# use of monte carlo simulation within regression in R or any avaliable programme

I have a data set; sample size is 16, the number of independent variable is 18 and one dependent variable . there are correlations between independent variables. I want to conduct Monte Carlo according the linear regression relationship of these variables but some of independent variables do not follow known distributions. in this regard, can anyone suggest a way ?

• "there are correlations between independent variables" does not sound right, does it?! Oct 26, 2015 at 8:17
• I edited your question to change [correlation] tag into [bootstrap] as it seems to describe your question better.
