I understand that when reporting a regression with a dichotomous IV, you would report STDY rather than STDYX output because standardizing the dichotomous IV is not meaningful.

What about when you are interested in reporting the correlation between a dichotomous dependent variable and a continuous variable, or a correlation between two dichotomous variables? In these cases would you use the STDYX output?

Thank you!

I think for those parameters StdY and StdYX are the same.
