Stat 312: Lecture 22 Inference on Correlation Moo K. Chung mchung@stat.wisc.edu April 17, 2003 Concepts 1. Assume that X and Y are two random variables whose joint probability density function f is the bivariate normal such that X N ( μ X , σ 2 X ) , Y N ( μ Y , σ 2 Y ) and ρ ( X, Y ) = ρ . In this situation, we can show that ( Y | X = x ) = β 0 + β 1 x , where β 1 = ρσ Y X . This is the regression model we studied! 2. Testing H 0 : ρ = 0 vs. H 1 : ρ 6 = 0 is equiva- lent to H 0 : β 1 = 0 vs. H 1 : β 1 6 = 0 . So the appropriate test statistic for testing H 0 : ρ = 0 is T = ˆ β 1 /S ˆ β 1 t n - 2 (see Lecture 19, Concept 3). This test statistic is equivalent to T = r n - 2 1 - r 2 . 3. Testing for independence is equivalent to testing ρ = 0 in bivariate data. In-class problems Exercise 12.67. A sample of 10,000 ( x i , y i ) pairs re- sulted in the sample correlation coefficient r = 0 . 022 . Test
