Dear all,

I am confused about how to transform standardized betas  to correlation
Can I used the simple imputation formula proposed by Peterson and Brown
(2005) where r = β + 0.05 λ ?  λ is an indicator variable that equals 1
when β is nonnegative and 0 when β is negative. Is this correct? or
acceptable ?
