Betreff: st: rank biserial correlation

dear all,

I would like to calculate a rank biserial correlation coefficient between
dichotomous variables (e.g. application of a specific method in the
aanalysis; yes/no) and ordinal variables (satisfaction with results of the
analysis; five-point likert scale).

to my knowledge, rank biserial should do the job and can be fairly easy
calculated in excel.

however, since I'd like to analyse the correlation between many, many
different variables I would prefer an 'automatic' solution in stata rather
than doing it manually  in excel.

any idea?

thanks - any help it is highly appreciated!

best

martin
