    Which correlation coefficient is best suited to dichotomous variables (and why do my results feel intutiteivly wrong)

    None of this answers my very specific questions that I asked. You can imagine what you like, I'm sure people do fast post-binge but i'm not going to caveat my post to cover every possible thought you might have that may or may not have an impact on the data. Please assume that the data is...

    Which correlation coefficient is best suited to dichotomous variables (and why do my results feel intutiteivly wrong)

    No rational to the days I chose but per my first post (see chart) you'l notice that I tended to fast during the same days for the last 3 years. Why is it important to know this knowing what I am asking? just curious.

    Which correlation coefficient is best suited to dichotomous variables (and why do my results feel intutiteivly wrong)

    Hi, thanks for sharing your thoughts. Whilst the concerns you expressed are fair, they are way too nuanced for now. I'm a fairly consistent person and if I didnt drink much water for a few days and whilst it *may* impact weight-loss I have 3 years of data here so it would not have a...

    Which correlation coefficient is best suited to dichotomous variables (and why do my results feel intutiteivly wrong)

    Thank for your input. Here is how the data was collected: 1) I fast on a given day (T) 2) I take my weight on T+1 (always after I wake up and have a bowl movement [yes I'm regular] but before I eat anything) I'm not too sure what you are trying to convey in your post? Thanks

    Hi, Answers to your questions (please note that I'm not a stats student or professional so apologies if I did not understand the questions as asked): 1) Are they just for one person? Yes - and I am that person. Data collected over approx. 3 years. 2) Was fasting randomized? I'm afraid I...

    Which correlation coefficient is best suited to dichotomous variables (and why do my results feel intutiteivly wrong)

    Thank you @Karabiner - I really appreciate your insightful response! it took me on a bit of a journey! anyway... I looked into your suggestions and acted on them to find the following: 1) The odds-ratio (OR) for my variables is 23.6 2) The confidence-interval (CI) for my variables at 95% is...

    Which correlation coefficient is best suited to dichotomous variables (and why do my results feel intutiteivly wrong)

    I have collected data that shows the days on which I fasted and if those days resulted in weight-loss. Null hypothesis: There is no statistically significant relationship between fasting and weight loss. Data Analysis: 1 The chart (see way below) is a visual representation of my data. The...
