Technique for Approximating the Bivariate Normal Correlation Coefficient, Rho, and Estimating Tetrachoric r.
Kirk, David B.
In this paper a reliable method is found for approximating the value of the Bivariate Normal Correlation Coefficient, rho, given values of the joint probability and the normal deviates, h and k, or the related areas. This technique finds useful application in the computation of the tetrachoric correlation coefficient, r, when the underlying distributions may be assumed to be normal. (Author)
