University of Toronto Statistical Analysis Using SPSS Worksheet
Assignment on Statistical Analysis using SPSSCase 1:
Use the data file named Spearman Kendall No Ties containing two generic variables
named X and Y to generate the Spearman correlation. These variables have each
independently been rank-ordered and have been listed based on the X ranking. For
example, the first case is ranked first on X but second on Y.
To demonstrate the differences among the three correlations when there are ties in the
rankings, use the data file named Spearman Kendall Ties containing two generic
variables named A and B. These variables have each independently been rank-ordered
and listed based on the A ranking. Thus, Case number 1 is ranked first on A but eighth
on B. Ties in ranks are handled by assigning each of the tied ranks an average of the ranks
that would have been used in the absence of a tie. For example, Case number 2 and Case
number 6 were tied on the B measure and were each given the average rank of 4.5. As
can be seen in the data file, 10 of the 14 cases were involved in tied scores on the B
1. Obtain the Spearman and Kendall correlation using the two datasets and compare
the two generated outputs.
2. Interpret your results based on the analysis performed.
