Title: Significance of the Difference Between an Observed Correlation Coefficient and a Hypothetical Value
Url: http://faculty.vassar.edu/lowry/rpop.html
Creator: Lowry, Richard
Publisher: Vassar College
Description: Using the Fisher r-to-z transformation, this page will calculate a value of z that can be applied to assess the significance of the difference between r, the correlation observed within a sample of size n and rho, the correlation hypothesized to exist within the population of bivariate values from which the sample is randomly drawn. If r is greater than rho, the resulting value of z will have a positive sign; if r is smaller than rho, the sign of z will be negative.
