Repeated measures correlation (rmcorr) is a statistical technique for determining the common within-individual association for paired measures assessed on two or more occasions for multiple individuals.
Rmcorr accounts for non-independence among observations using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) to statistically adjust for inter-individual variability. By removing measured variance between-participants, rmcorr provides the best linear fit for each participant using parallel regression lines (the same slope) with varying intercepts. Like a Pearson correlation coefficient, the rmcorr coefficient is bounded by − 1 to 1 and represents the strength of the linear association between two variables.
Results have been tested against the rmcorr R package.
Missing values are automatically removed from the dataframe (listwise deletion).
