When?[edit]

Are there situations where Spearman's ρ is more suitabke than Kendall's τ, or vice-versa? How can we choose which one to use? I have no clue about it, but it would be useful to know that. Calimo (talk) 13:18, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

I agree. It is useless to list two options if no information is supplied allowing to somehow distinguish them at a glance without clicking individually each one and see for each one an explanation ignoring the other. 212.198.146.203 (talk) 06:47, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
