Description

This function transform a correlation coefficient into the scale of Fischer's Z.

Usage

1

Arguments

r

correlation coefficient (between two variables)

Details

This function is typically used in the context of forming a confidence interval for a population correlation coefficient. Note that, in that situation, the two variables are assumed to follow a bivariate normal distribution (e.g., Hays, 1994).

Value

returns a value on the scale of Fisher's Z, also called Fisher's emphZ\', from a given correlation value.
