I'm evaluating a survey and want to test the correlation of independent variables and I do not know which test / coefficient I can use as the variables have the following properties:
- dichotomous variable
- continuous variable, data not normally distributed
If there wasn't the problem with the normal distribution, I would use the point-biserial correlation coefficient. However, I have read that people use this coefficient anyway, even if the data is not normally distributed. My sample size is n=147, so I do not think that this would be a good idea.
