A Class of Symmetric Bivariate Uniform Distributions

by Thomas S. Ferguson of the University of California, Los Angeles

July 8, 1994

Abstract: A class of symmetric bivariate uniform distributions is proposed for use in statistical modeling. The distributions may be constructed to be absolutely continuous with correlations as close to 1 as desired. Expressions for the correlations, regressions and copulas are found. An extension to three dimensions is proposed.

Keywords: Copulas, Spearman's rho, Kendall's tau, median regression.
