- Practice – Correlation
- A straight line
- A regression equation
- Practice!
- A quicker way to compute a correlation

- Interpret the following:
- 1) The correlation between vocational-interest scores at age 20 and at age 40 was .70.
- 2) Age and IQ is correlated -.16.
- 3) The correlation between IQ and family size is -.30.
- 4) The correlation between sexual promiscuity and dominance is .32.
- 5) In a sample of males happiness and height is correlated .11.

- You are interested in the relationship between hours slept and happiness.
- 1) Make a scatter plot
- 2) Guess the correlation
- 3) Guess and draw the location of the regression line

- Need to find the best place to draw the regression line on a scatter plot
- Need to quantify the cluster of scores around this regression line (i.e., the correlation coefficient)

Y = mX + b

Where:

Y and X are variables representing scores

m = slope of the line (constant)

b = intercept of the line with the Y axis (constant)

- How do you figure out the best values to use for m and b ?
- First lets move into the language of regression

Y = mX + b

Where:

Y and X are variables representing scores

m = slope of the line (constant)

b = intercept of the line with the Y axis (constant)

Y = a + bX

Where:

Y = value predicted from a particular X value

a = point at which the regression line intersects the Y axis

b = slope of the regression line

X = X value for which you wish to predict a Y value

- Y = -7 + 2X
- What is the slope and the Y-intercept?
- Determine the value of Y for each X:
- X = 1, X = 3, X = 5, X = 10

- Y = -7 + 2X
- What is the slope and the Y-intercept?
- Determine the value of Y for each X:
- X = 1, X = 3, X = 5, X = 10
- Y = -5, Y = -1, Y = 3, Y = 13

- Uses the least squares method
- Minimizes Error
Error = Y - Y

(Y - Y)2 is minimized

.

.

.

.

.

Error = Y - Y

(Y - Y)2 is minimized

.

Error = 1

.

Error = .5

.

Error = -1

.

Error = 0

Error = -.5

- Ingredients
- r value between the two variables
- Sy and Sx
- Mean of Y and X

b =

r = correlation between X and Y

SY = standard deviation of Y

SX = standard deviation of X

a = Y - bX

Y = mean of the Y scores

b= regression coefficient computed previously

X = mean of the X scores

- How much money would likely be earned if an advertiser spent $10,000?

- How much money would likely be earned if an advertiser spent $2,000?
- 77.88 = 51.08 + (13.40)2
- $77, 880

- How much money would likely be earned if an advertiser spent $10,000?
- 185.08 = 51.08 + (13.40)10
- $185,080

- Good way to calculate r if the means and standard deviations are already provided.
- It is very time consuming to calculate these statistics if they are not already provided
- If means and standard deviations are not given, use the raw-score formula
