Syntax. FISHERINV(y)

Definition. This function returns the inverse of the Fisher transformation. Use this transformation when analyzing correlations between ranges or arrays of data.

If y = FISHER(x), then FISHERINV(y) = x.

Arguments

  • y (required). The value for which you want to invert the transformation

Note

If y isn’t a numeric value, the FISHERINV() function returns the #VALUE! error.

Background. The FISHERINV() function is the inverse function of FISHER(). This means that this function returns the inverse of the Fisher transformation.

FISHERINV() calculates the initial x-value of the Fisher-transformed z-value. Use this transformation when analyzing correlations between ranges or arrays of data. The equation for the inverse of the Fisher ...
