Correlation

Correlation

- Negative Correlation on the other hand is a positive change in one variable causes a negative change in the other variable.
- The best example for this is the demand theory in Economics.

Correlation

- The result of Correlation can only range between -1.00 and +1.00. If the answer is -1.00 then it is called perfect Negative Correlation and +1.00 denotes a perfect Positive Correlation. 0.00 denotes that there is no correlation at all.
- Let us understand the process of Correlation with a good example.

Correlation Example Problem

- The Mean of X and Y are calculated to be 4.7 and 79.9 respectively. The Standard Deviation of X and Y are calculated to be 2.1628 and 11.5706 respectively.
- Now, the formula for Correlation Coefficient or Karl Pearson Correlation (r) is
- r =

Correlation Example Problem

- Here, we can observe that the ∑XY = 3939; N is the means of X and Y, calculated to be 4.7 and 79.9 respectively. Standard Deviation is denoted by Sxand Sy which are calculated to be 2.1628 and 11.5706. When we apply the values we get
- r =

Correlation Example Problem

- The Coefficient Determination = r2 = 0.822 = 0.67 or 67%.
- Therefore, we can conclude that the score in exams is directly related to the number of hours studied to a significant extent. And we can say that there is a positive correlation between the Number of hours Studied and the Scores obtained in Exams.
