Can you use correlation for percentages?

I am trying to determine what statistical measure of association I can use to determine whether there is a relationship between these two variables.

I assumed the best way to do this is to convert the two variables to percentages so that my hypothesis would be: there is a positive correlation between the percentage of telecommuters and percentage of independent contractors a firm has. However, I read that you cannot use correlation to compare two percentages.

I am not strong in statistics so I would be very grateful for any insight on whether what I am trying to do here seems logical, if converting to percentages to run the correlation makes sense, and if correlation is an acceptable means of determining association between two %s. If it is not, I would be very grateful for recommendations on statistical tests that would work best to determine the association between these two variables.

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 18:34:30 GMTFor the 1-2 weeks I've been trying to decompose the T2 statistic into two independent chi2-distributed statistics, but have had no success. I'm assuming its possible, as the T2 can be transformed into an F statistic, which is the ratio of two chi2 distributions. Any help or referrals would be much appreciated.
