The correlation coefficient between income and savings for a random sample of 70 households was calculated to be 0.78. Calculate 95% confidence limits for the population correlation coefficient.


Im thinking the method here is 0.78+-1.96x standard error of the correlation coefficient.

However, I have seen several different formulas for the standard error, and Im not sure this is the right method in the first place!

If anyone can explain this to me I would be extremely grateful.

Would the standard error be (1-r)^2 / sqrtn-1 ?

If anyone can help thatd be amazing.
