You are absolutely right Mr. Cox.

Thank you for calling my attention to this point. Nick Cox schrieb:

I think you are confusing three quite distinct issues.-correlate-, -pwcorr- and -spearman- all calculate results to machine precision.Each of them has their own choice of display format, which happen to be identical at %7.4f.If you pick up the correlation in r(rho), then what display format you use to print that out elsewhere is up to you.I wonder what use 5th and higher decimal places can be for correlations in any case.Nickn.j.cox@durham.ac.ukRené GeppertStill there's one question left to the code: How can I determine thenumber of decimals the coefficients shall be rounded to?(pw)corr and spearman do not seem to explicitly provide for such an option. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
