Subject   st: can I compare correlations with t-tests (Bonferroni)?
Date   Mon, 16 Jun 2008 10:37:00 +0200

I have item A in a scale "interest in participating to their countrys or to their regions economic and technological development", which I want to compare with 12 items in another scale. 
I would like to show that:
- item A is correlated with 10th, 11th and 12th item in the other scale
- such correlation is "stronger" than between A and 1st item, A and 2nd, .... A and 9th
This is obvious on the correlation table since correlation between A and other items are:
0.1095 (A and 1st) 0.1227 (A and 2nd) 0.1285 0.1833 0.1487 0.1546 0.1483 0.2489 0.278 0.2037 (A and 12th)
Is there a way/a test in Stata to say it statistically (i.e. with some p-value)? 
Many thanks in advance for your help,
Nicola

P.S. From statalist-digest V4 #3088 on, I noticed that the characters' size has been reduced (from medium to small, according to Eudora's version 7 standards). Is it true or did I incidentally changed some setting on my pc?
