SPEARMAN2: Stata module to calculate Spearman rank correlations, extended
spearman2 performs the same functions as Stata's original spearman with one exception. If a varlist of two variables is given, spearman produces a test of the hypothesis of a zero rank correlation, and provides a p-value for that test. It does not display the test statistic. In contrast, spearman2 calculates and displays the standard error of the coefficient, and displays the t-statistic for the test as well as its degrees of freedom. These items are returned as r(rhose), r(rhot), r(rhodf) respectively.
