Note on the Pearson r as a Function of the Bivariate Distributional Characteristics
Quereshi, M. Y.
Journal of Educational Measurement, 8, 3, 225-27, F 71
The study investigated the degree to which errors of scaling and selection depress the linear relationship and whether the reduction in the magnitude of r differs with the type of error. Results indicated that various scaling errors caused considerable discrepancy in the measurement of underlying relations, but the effect of non-normality was minimum. (Author/AG)
