One of the important fields in statistics is testing hypothesis of correlation coefficient. The extension of the idea of testing correlation to fuzzy hypothesis is of great interesting. In this study, we examined the use of fuzzy hypothesis testing approach for the Sequential Probability Ratio Test (SPRT) of correlation coefficient. Use of fuzzy hypothesis testing for correlation coefficient with SPRT is illustrated by an example.
