Answer:

Population Correlation coefficient = Sample correlation coefficient #+-#[Critical value #xx# Standard Error ]

Explanation:

Population Correlation coefficient = Sample correlation coefficient #+-#[Critical value #xx# Standard Error ]

Critical value is the table value.

If the sample size is greater than 30, you have to refer Normal Distribution . Its value depends on the confidence level.

Say for example if the confidence level is 99% the critical value is #2.58#

If the sample size is less than 30, you have to refer #t# Distribution Table.

The value depends on confidence level and the degrees of freedom.
