Sample r versus a Hypothetical Value of rho
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
||rho, the correlation hypothesized to exist within the population of bivariate values from which the sample is randomly drawn.
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.
To perform the calculation, enter the relevant values into the designated cells, then click the 'Calculate' button.
