    URGENT help needed!! How do I calculate Spearman's Rank-order correlation...

    for this data:

    Child's weight: 7.3, 7.1, 5.5, 7.2, 8.6, 5.3, 7.5, 7.8, 8.3, 6.3, 9.2, 8.7, 7.8, 9.0, 8.0

    Father's occupation: 6, 6, 2, 6, 0, 6, 0, 1, 7, 6, 5, 6, 0, 8, 5
    ****NOTES for fathers occupation********
    0 = professional.
    1 = Teacher
    2 = Manager.
    3 = self employed
    4 = sales
    5 = clerical
    6 = craftsman
    7 = labourer
    8 = service worker.

    Also note that first father occupation number goes with first child weight number, etc

    Hello,

    I've attached a screenshot of the calculations. (Remark: In Germany a comma is used instead of a decimal point)
