A government researcher wants to conduct a study to determine if there is a correlation between social security numbers and income. He collects the paired data from a random sample of 100 people. Should the methods of this chapter be used with the linear correlation coefficient? Why or why not?

We do not have your text with the chapter. However, you need to realize the social security numbers are only a nominal scale.
