Doctoral Psych Students' Dissertation Community
I've emailed my committee member that's helping me with the statistical part of my dissertation, but just in case anyone had some wisdom for me:|
All of my variables are categorical except for age. As such, the correlation measure I should use is the Spearman rho, correct? As opposed to the Pearson r which is used for variables that are intervals, such as scores. If I do, in fact, need to use the Spearman rho, can excel do that? Excel has a sort of all-purpose correlation function and a Pearson coefficient function but I don't see anything about Spearman rho.
Does anyone know?
