I have successfully managed to run 2 spearman correlations for 2 independent samples looking at the same variables. I am, however, having trouble using Fisher's z test in order to compare these 2 groups. Below is the syntax and error messages I am receiving.
data five ;
merge WSW keep=Nobs ZVal
ERROR 22-322: Syntax error, expecting one of the following: a name, a quoted string, (, -, :, ;, END, _DATA_, _LAST_,_NULL_.
ERROR 201-322: The option is not recognized and will be ignored.
ERROR 76-322: Syntax error, statement will be ignored.
WSM keep=Nobs ZVal
variance = 1/(n1-3) + 1/(n2-3);
z = (z1 - z2) / sqrt( variance );
pval = probnorm(z);
if (pval > 0.5) then pval = 1 - pval;
pval = 2*pval;
NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors
