The construction of -variate distribution functions, introducing dependences among
random variables and keeping fixed the marginal distribution functions, is important in the
development of theoretical and empirical statistical analysis. Here, a method for generating such
distribution functions is developed. Characteristics of the resulting distribution functions are
discussed. An application to discrete regression models is presented. The latter is specialized to
model choice of mode od transportation by travelers.
