Abstract:

We are concerned with the use of power transformations when data on two variables are presented in a two way table. Situations where one or both variables are grouped into intervals are considered and regressions and the correlation obtained from the transformed data. Also, by transforming back to the original scale,we obtain a smoothed version of the data. Author
