An SPSS Macro to Compute Confidence Intervals for Pearson's Correlation
Ray Koopman and I wrote an article called An SPSS Macro to Compute Confidence Intervals for Pearson's Correlation. We wrote it because the SPSS CORRELATIONS procedure does not provide confidence intervals (CIs) for rho. The article has now been published in The Quantitative Methods for Psychology, and can be downloaded free of charge here. The macro definition file and a syntax file showing examples of its use are available via the links provided below.
The macro definition file and demonstration files have been uploaded as text files (with .txt as the file extension). Left-clicking on the links for those files will cause them to open in your text editor (or possibly in your web browser). This was done to facilitate viewing of the files by folks who do not have SPSS installed. To download those files as SPSS syntax files, right-click on the links and select Save As (or Save Link As). Then add the extension .SPS to the file name, and enclose the entire file name in quotes -- e.g., "rhoCI.SPS".
