Spearman's rank correlation
indicated that most non-parametric measures were significantly (P<0.01) intercorrelated with parametric measures and therefore can be used as alternatives.
Considering these replacement rates (i.e., 10% for boars and 50% for sows), rank correlations
in this Thai swine herd would indicate that first parity reproduction data would help identify replacement sows more accurately than replacement boars for their superiority for lifetime productivity.
Table 1 shows that, in 1992, high total Medicare spending regions were most likely also to be high use in inpatient hospital spending and in home health spending (rank correlations
of 0.786 and 0.535, respectively); this association was further strengthened by the end of the study period, in 2010 (rank correlations
of 0.853 and 0.736, respectively).
However, the Spearman rank correlations
(Exhibit 13) are not statistically significant for more than four of the industries in either case.
In order to understand the rank correlation
between 2007 and 2008, Spearman rank correlations
and Kendall's coefficient of concordance were used in this study.
This shows a positive correlation between the ranking of the project related factors under traditional and green building projects since a high value of rank correlation
coefficient suggests a strong agreement between the two groups.
A comparison was made between the Pearson correlation coefficients and the Spearman rank correlation
The Spearman rank correlation
coefficients of the EQ-5D index and VAS score with MacNew subscale scores were calculated.
A Spearman Rank Correlation
test and regression was performed for each of the four years using the two indices--Corruption Perception Index (CPI) and Country Competitiveness Score (CCS).
Spearman rank correlations
were performed using SPSS (ver.
Using the rank correlations
for MI as a benchmark, we do a t-test to see the improvements by CORDER, phi-squared, improved MI, Z score, and the two baseline algorithms.
