Can you please direct me to SAS example where
1. We study correlation between one ordinal and one nominal variable.
2. We study correlation between two ordinal variable.
Proc freq computes many measures of association, for different purposes. See
I think @PGStats suggestion to consider using the measures of association supported by PROC FREQ is a good one.
I'll just add that for the case of two ordinal variables, if you can assume their values are derived from an unobserved bivariate normal distribution you could estimate the polychoric correlation by using PROC CORR.
Yes the Spearman rank order correlation is another option. PROC FREQ also supports both of these measures of association. You can use the PLCORR option in the TABLES statement to request the polychoric correlation coefficient and the MEASURES option (as mentioned in @PGStats response) will request the Spearman coefficient.
You can Example 3.8 in the PROC FREQ documentation for an example using the MEASURES option.
