ABSTRACT Even though the Goodman–Kruskal gamma (γ) is perhaps the most popular measure of association between two ordinal categorical variables, it does have some well-known limitations. In particular, it is widely recognized that its sample form takes on values that may be highly inflated, making it incomparable with other measures such as the frequently used Kendall's tau-b (). Such overstatement of a characteristic, varying in extent, has important implications for the validity and… Expand
