Since the Spearman coefficient only measures the degree of monotone association between X and Y over rank values, its characterization of the relationship between X and Y is not as narrowly focused as that of ρXY ; that is, ρS measures the tendency toward monotonicity and ρXY measures the tendency toward linearity, with the tendency toward linearity emerging as a special case of the tendency toward monotonicity. ) Since the X and Y values are simply ranks, it should be evident that any outliers present in a data set will distort the value of ρXY but will not affect the magnitude of ρS since the latter measure treats all observations equally.
3 Let us find P20 given X : 3, 8, 8, 6, 7, 9, 5, 10, 11, 20, 19, 15, 11, 16. Upon rearranging the N = 14 observations in an increasing sequence we have 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8, 9, 10, 11, 11, 15, 16, 19, 20. Since 20% of the observations on X lie at or below P20 , we may determine j(N+1) = 20(15) = 3; that is, the twentieth percentile of X is found at the third obser100 100 vation in the previous increasing sequence or P20 = 6. 25, and D6 is 4 located at the ninth observation in the same (since 6(N+1) = 9) or D6 = 11.
