@article{Curran2014MonteCE, title={Monte Carlo error analyses of Spearman's rank test}, author={P. Curran}, journal={arXiv: Instrumentation and Methods for Astrophysics}, year={2014} }

Spearman's rank correlation test is commonly used in astronomy to discern whether a set of two variables are correlated or not. Unlike most other quantities quoted in astronomical literature, the Spearman's rank correlation coefficient is generally quoted with no attempt to estimate the errors on its value. This is a practice that would not be accepted for those other quantities, as it is often regarded that an estimate of a quantity without an estimate of its associated uncertainties is… CONTINUE READING
