I have two questions.
(1)When you do the marginal homogeneity test, which
statistic (the observed MH statistic or the std. MH
statistic I am guessing are most likely) do you report
in your results section and how? I have never used
this statistic before, nor seen it referred to in
papers.
(2)I want to find two sets of correlations between
three variables. One variable is a frequency count,
one is a nominal variable and the other is ordinal. I
need correlations between the frequency count and the
nominal variable and a separate correlation between
the frequency count and the ordinal variable. I
computed regular Pearson correlations so far. I would
like to know if I can do Pearsons (any kind of
reference to back up a yes answer would be
appreciated), and if not, should I be doing two
different types of correlation, a Spearman's or a
Kendall's tau_b? Or even an Eta?
Thank you.
Amanda
