> Subject: [R] multiple-test correlation
> Dear all,
> I am trying to study the correlation between one "independent" variable
> ("V1") and several others dependent among them ("V2","V3","V4" and
> "V5"). For doing so, I would like to analyze my data by multiple-test
> (applying the Bonferroni´s correction or other similar), but I do not
> find the proper command in R. What I want to do is to calculate
> Kendall´s correlation between "V1" and the others variables (i.e. "V1"
> vs "V2", "V1" vs "V3", etc.) and to correct the p values by Bonferroni
> or other. I have found "outlier.test", but I do not know if this is
> what I need (also, I would prefer to use a less conservative method
> than Bonferroni´s, if possible).
> Thank you very much in advance!
