## Simulate by bootstrap

### Description

Simulate by bootstrap

### Usage

```
simule(data, nb.simul)
```

### Arguments

`data` |
A data frame from which the rows are the original data from which the simualte data are calculated (by the average of a bootstrap sample. The columns corresponds to the variables for which the simulation should be done. The first column must be a factor allowing to group the rows. A bootstrap simulation is done for each level of this factor. |

`nb.simul` |
The number of simulations. |

### Details

The simulation is independently done for each level of the factor. The number of rows can be different for each levels.

### Value

`mean` |
Data.frame with all the levels of the factor variable, and for each variable, the mean of the original data. |

`simul` |
Data.frame with all the levels of the factor variable, and for each variable, the nb.simul bootstrap simulations. |

`simul.mean` |
Data.frame with all the levels of the factor variable, and for each variable, the mean of the simulated data. |
