July 2013 Member Webinar: Measures of Association: Beyond Pearson’s Correlation

by Karen Grace-Martin

There are dozens of measures of association. Even just correlations come in many flavors: Pearson, Spearman, biserial, tetrachoric, squared multiple, to name a few. And there are many measures beyond correlation.

You probably learned many of these way back in intro stat, then promptly forgot about them. That may be reasonable, but they do pop up as important within the context of other, more complicated statistical methods. A strong foundation in the measures of association makes those other methods much easier to understand.

In this webinar, we’re going to re-examine many of these measures, see how they fit together (or don’t), and talk about when each one is useful.

 

Note: This webinar is an exclusive benefit for members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program.
