Cautions in the Interpretation of the Partial Correlation Coefficient.
Sachar, Jane
Journal of Experimental Education, v48 n3 p209-16 Spr 1980
The partial correlation coefficient is derived analytically under exemplary factor patterns. In these patterns, variables are described as an additive composition of a set of orthogonal factors, including general, common, and specific factors. Viewed in this framework, it is evident that the partial correlation may yield spurious results. (Author/GDC)
