Restriction of Range and Correlation in Outlier-Prone Distributions.
Zimmerman, Donald W.; Williams, Richard H.
Applied Psychological Measurement, v24 n3 p267-80 Sep 2000
Restricted the range of nonnormal distributions by eliminating scores above a designated cutoff value or eliminating scores above or below the mean by a certain distance. Results of a simulation study show that range restriction sometimes increased the correlation between variables having outlier prone distributions. Discusses practical implications of findings showing the conditions under which this occurs. (SLD)
