caseII: Corrects correlations using Case II

Description

Using Thorndike's Case II correction, caseIII corrects the xy correlation for direct restriction on x

Usage

1
caseII(rxy, sx, sxs)

Arguments

rxy

the restricted correlation between x (the indirectly selected variable) and y (the outcome variable).

sx

the unrestricted standard deviation of x

sxs

the restricted standard deviation of x

Details

The Case II correction is defined as follows insert later The result is an unbiased estimate of the unattenuated correlation between X and Y

Value

a scalar that is the unbiased estimate of the correlation between X and Y.
