Calculating the Average Correlation Coefficient: Why?
 Bruce Ratner, Ph.D.

This report provides a SAS-code program for calculating the average correlation coefficient that is a continually used statistic.  I always use the statistic in my statistical modeling and data mining. However, I am curious in the ways my colleague data analysts use it, as I get daily about a dozen hits on my website for this link, which is indicated by the exacting search phrase "average correlation coefficient."

If you are interested in how I use the average correlation coefficient, please email me. In return, I would like you to email me your application of the statistic. Sharing our approaches will "guaranty a splendid time for all."
