comparing Pearson r
I have two continous variables (VAR1 and VAR2) and I wish to calculate their correlation in married and not married individuals and compare the two correlation coefficients. I wish to compare the coefficients in the two subsamples. I think that this should be done with a z-test, right? Can this be conducted in JASP? Note that I opt for the Bayesian options.
An alternative that I thought was to run a bayesian linear regression analysis and include the marriage variable as a covariate (and then include the interaction marriage * VAR2 term in the model). However, JASP does not let me put Marriage in the Covariates box (in the classical linear regression this is not a problem).
Finally, I run the correlations separately by group and the results did not update automatically when I was changing the filter. Not sure if this should be happening, but I am letting you know :-)
