Abstract : The author developed methods for the generation of a synthetic database, whose records may include fields of different types text strings, characters, and numbers. She examined techniques that allow us to simulate particular frequency distributions for each field in a data record and to reflect relations between the fields in a data record. In addition, to produce more realistic looking text data. She also presented an elementary algorithm that generates key entry or typographical errors.
