1. ## Spearman's Rank - easy question

Hey guys,

Just needed to know, when doing a Spearman's rank and you get two results of the same value, what do you do with them again?

Cheers

Both values get the average of the ranks.

Example:

$\begin{array}{c|c}rank & value \\ ...& ...\\ 3 & 4.75 \\4 & 4.75 \\ ... & ...\end{array}$ ...... becomes ...... $\begin{array}{c|c}rank & value \\ ...& ...\\ 3.5 & 4.75 \\3.5 & 4.75 \\ ... & ...\end{array}$
