Dear Theo, the following one is a temptative answer to your message. I assume I have 20 observations ordered in ranks (degrees of freedom (d_f) are 20-20=18, according to the hypothesis test formula for Spearman's rank correlation coefficient). Ho to be tested is rho=0. I have calculated a random Spearman's ranK correlation coefficient, t (ts) and then the p-value. ....................begin example...................... set obs 1 g r_Spearman=1*uniform() g d_f=(20-2) g ts= r_Spearman*[(20-2)/(1-(-r_Spearman^2))]^.5 g p_value=ttail(d_f, ts) ...................end example....................... HTH and Kind Regards, Carlo -----Messaggio originale----- Da: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Per conto di Theo Serge Inviato: giovedì 19 giugno 2008 8.24 A: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Oggetto: st: Spearman's rank correlation coefficient - power calculation Dear Statalist, I would be grateful if you could help me on a problem: Having submitted an article to a Journal, the reviewers asked me for power calculation on a Spearmanʼs rank correlation coefficient. This happened although I had been very careful with the interpretation of negative findings in the manuscript. Moreover, Spearmanʼs rank correlation coefficient was the appropriate choice for the univariate analysis performed, due to a variety of underlying factors. To my knowledge, there is no command through which STATA can perform power calculations on Spearmanʼs rank correlation coefficients. Please inform me if there is a way to overcome this difficulty. Are there any commands I am not familiar with? Would programming STATA be of value? What would be the optimal approach to this issue? The need for power calculations in Spearman's rank correlation coefficients seems justified. I thank you in advance. T.S.
