Factors That Do and Do Not Affect "r" and Its Generalizations.
Campbell, Todd C.
Correlation is one of the most widely used analytic procedures in the behavioral sciences. The bivariate correlation is implicit in all classical analyses ranging from t-tests to canonical correlation analysis. The most common correlation coefficient used in statistics is the Pearson product-moment coefficient of correlation, which is represented by the symbol "r." The present paper discusses factors that do and do not affect "r" and its generalizations, including additive and multiplicative constants. Seven tables and 11 figures are included. (Contains 20 references.) (Author)
