In SPSS, how do I compute point biserial correlation coefficients?
The point biserial correlation is simply a special case of the Pearson product moment correlation applied to dichotomous and continuous variables. To estimate the point biserial correlation, use the command for the Pearson product moment correlation:CORRELATIONS /VARIABLES=male income /STATISTICS=ALL.
