Nominal-ordinal measures of association: a comparison of two measures.


The measurement of the magnitude of association between a nominal independent variable and an ordinal dependent variable is an important, but neglected, component in psychological research. Two measures of nominal-ordinal association are described and compared. Resampling permutation methods are utilized to compute probability values for both measures.
