I'm trying to examine the association between a non-normally distributed continuous variable and a dichotomous variable: yes/no. At first, I thought I should conduct point-biserial correlations but then I realised that in point-biserial correlations, the continuous variable needs to be normally distributed. For this reason, I conducted the Mann-Whitney U test, because it is the non-parametric alternative to the independent t-test, since my continuous variable is not normally distributed. Was that the correct choice?
