I am attempting to test the correlation between two variables:
Predictor: Count data (not ranked)
Because my predictor variable is not continuous, I cannot use Pearson's, correct? However, because it is also not rank data, I cannot use Spearman's, yes?
What test for correlation would you guys suggest?
edit: Response to @whuber:
Perhaps I am misunderstanding "rank".
My predictor variable is the size of a group and my response variable is essentially the score that a group receives on a test.
I am testing to see if there is a correlation between group size and score.
My thought is that because a group size of n-1 isn't necessarily "better" than a group size of n (like how 1st place is better than 2nd), the data is not "ranked".
