Correlation Coefficient - Statistics

04/09/2019 17:01

 

Correlation. Correlation is a statistical technique that can show whether and how strongly pairs of variables are related. For example, height and weight are related; taller people tend to be heavier than shorter people. The relationship isn't perfect.

 

A simple way to have a better understanding of it, correlation is the result of the experiences between variables to justify the causes.

 

 

 

The main result of a correlation is called the correlation coefficient (or "r"). It ranges from -1.0 to +1.0. The closer r is to +1 or -1, the more closely the two variables are related.
