1. ## Spearmans Rank question

I am looking to test whether region (North / South) determines job satisfaction (graded 1 to 5).

I have created the following table. Job satisfaction is on the left with the frequency under north and south.

Can I use Spearmans Rank on this data to prove the question above or do I need to use Chi squared ?

----North South
1 --------5------- 5
2 -------11 -----11
3 -------15----- 14
4 --------5------- 3
5-------- 5 -------1

I have worked it though and the rank co-efficient comes out at 0.75 which would be strong positive correlation.

Any thoughts ?

I am wondering how you have calculated the Spearman rank correlation
coefficient for this data.

3. From your comment I guess it can't be done ?

I have attached a file which should help in what I have done.

If its completely wrong please tell me.

Cheers

No that is not how I understand it working. Use chi-squared test of some kind.
