Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was just wondering about spearman's rank correlation coefficient hypothesis tests - for these to be valid does the data in the sample have to be drawn from a bivariate normal distribution or does that only apply to the product moment correlation coefficient?

Cheers,

Just some guy
