Burr Type VII, a one-parameter non-normal distribution, is among the less studied distributions, especially, in the contexts of statistical modeling and simulation studies. The main purpose of this study is to introduce a methodology for simulating univariate and multivariate Burr Type VII distributions through the method of L-moments and L-correlations. The methodology can be applied in statistical modeling of events in a variety of applied mathematical contexts and Monte Carlo simulation studies. Numerical examples are provided to demonstrate that L-moment-based Burr Type VII distributions are superior to their conventional moment-based analogs in terms of distribution fitting and estimation. Simulation results presented in this study also demonstrate that the estimates of L-skew, L-kurtosis, and L-correlation are substantially superior to their conventional product-moment based counterparts of skew, kurtosis, and Pearson correlation in terms of relative bias and relative efficiency when distributions with greater departure from normality are used.
