Inhoud: A special problem in behavioral sciences are time series where the data points of one series are dependent on the just prior values of the other series. The data structure may additionally exhibit an interdependence between the variables that changes over time. Pfanzagl's T provides a robust test of trend independence between such data sets. At the same time the applicability of Pearson's r can be extended by using the statistical considerations for T. For this purpose, the time series are transformed into binary series, consisting either of the values 1 or 0. These series may show distinct trend patterns of consecutive data points with the value 1 or with the value 0. Data points belonging to the same trend pattern are regarded as cohering values for any further mathematical operation applied. Based on the trend identifcation the T-value is derived, providing information on the coherent development of trend patterns in the two series. Additionally Pearson's r together with a modified sampling theory offers a standard measure of linear association between the time series. The procedures are described and a computer program is provided, combining Pfanzagl's T and Pearson's r with a bootstrap procedure for the statistical evaluation of the correlation coefficients.
