Can I create a dataset using synthetic or generated values?


Yes, but only if you can't find a real or semi-synthetic dataset.

Here, real means a publicly available dataset, and semi-synthetic means a real dataset that you've anonymized or changed the values in (to avoid revealing personal or commercially sensitive information).
