Hi, anybody have any ideas on this ?
I have two sequences of proportions. Due to
conventions in my field, I need to produce a linear
correlation between the two. Each sequence of
proportions are based upon differing numbers of
observations (although within a sequence the number of
observations may not fluctuate too much) so it may be
necessary/advisable to variance stabilize. Is their a
best way to go about doing this in R?
I am tempted to do something like the following:
Use the logistic transformation on each proportion.
Next do weighted least squares. Finally, adjust the
beta coef by multiplying by sqrt(Sxx/Syy). However,
this doesn't take into account the variance in the
Maybe its better too work with counts of successes
instead of proportions?
Is their a better way and how do I do it best with R?
Thanks in advance for any help.
