I am trying to make sense of the spearman test I am getting as a result of using cor.test on R package. This page seemed to me to inform that I should care not only for p-values and rho values from the output but as well its relation with the t tests. Sometimes I get as result p value of 0 and rho value of 1 and the value of the statistical test is zero as well.

I saw a similar question here but seems too focused on some performed spearman correlation. Since this is not really R related but involves conceptual understanding of spearman test statistic as mentioned on R, I thought this would be more appropriated than stack overflow.

Thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ Fun how you share the same question and the same surname, and the same country lol :) Not yet, I had an statistician tell me that they should be cross-sectional but not enough details for me to reason over it. So the question still remains. $\endgroup$ – Oeufcoque Penteano May 22 '13 at 4:03
