**Applies to:**

@RISK 5.x–7.x

The RiskCompound( ) function seems pretty complex. Can you give me an overview?

The short answer is: RiskCompound lets you model a risk that could occur a varying number of times, with different severities—and model it in one function. The main article is first in the list below, and the others explore specialized issues.

- Combining Probability and Impact (Frequency and Severity)
- For Faster Simulations (If the artile opens at the top, use Ctrl+F to find RiskCompound.)

Special applications:

- Same Input Appears Twice in Tornado Graph
- RAND Versus RiskUniform or RiskBernoulli
- Combining the RDK with @RISK
- RiskCompound Equivalent in the RDK

Correlation:

- "The RiskMakeInput distribution ... may not be correlated" applies to RiskCompound also. For partial workarounds, see the next two bullets.
- Correlation of RiskCompound by unpacking the severity distribution.
- Correlating RiskMakeInput or RiskCompound, Approximately, by creating a nearly equivalent RiskCumul distribution.
