Subject: Re: SPSS symmetric measures of association
If your sample sizes are not large you could consider an exact test. I
have been looking at linear by linear association tests and there is also
a special case the Cochran Armitage test which may be relevant. Agresti's
books on categorical data analysis discuss these and the other statistical
tests that you mention, as well as the relationship between them.
