Oracle SQL - CORR_S function

Introduction

CORR_S function also calculates a rank correlation.

It is also a non-parametric procedure.

The following options are available for the CORR_S function.

For the coefficient:

CORR_S(expr1, expr2, 'COEFFICIENT') 

For significance level of one-sided test:

CORR_S(expr1, expr2, 'ONE_SIDED_SIG') 

For significance level of two-sided test:

CORR_S(expr1, expr2, 'TWO_SIDED_SIG') 

Given the following table.

Demo

SQL>
SQL> drop table my_table;

Table dropped.--  w w  w  .j  a  va 2 s. co m

SQL> create table my_table(
  2  x      NUMBER(4)  primary key,
  3  y      NUMBER(4)  not null);
