Repeated Measures Correlation

Compute the repeated measures correlation, a statistical technique for determining the overall within-individual relationship among paired measures assessed on two or more occasions, first introduced by Bland and Altman (1995). Includes functions for diagnostics, p-value, effect size with confidence interval including optional bootstrapping, as well as graphing. Also includes several example datasets.
