. A value of r near 0 indicates little correlation between attributes; a value near +1 or -1 indicates a high level of correlation. Whentwo attributes have a positive correlation coefﬁcient, an increase in the value of one attribute indicates a likely increase in the value of the second attribute. A...
Whitney U – test. It is used when more than two populations are involved. 54. Define correlation? Correlation analysis deals with the association between two or more variables. 55. What is the significance of correlation? The following are the significances of correlation: There are some kinds of...

Correlation analysis helps us in determining the degree of relationship between two or more variables-it does not tell us anything about cause and effect relationship. Even a high degree of correlationdoes not necessarily mean that a relationship of cause and effect exists between the variables or, simply...
REGRESSION ANALYSIS
Correlation only indicates the degree and direction of relationship between twovariables. It does not, necessarily connote a cause-effect relationship. Even when there are grounds to believe the causal relationship exits, correlationdoes not tell us which variable is the...
the correlation surface in three dimensions (Tankard 51). Galton's 1888 paper, presented to the Royal Society of London, defines correlation:
Twovariable organs are said to be co-related when the variation of the one is accompanied on the average by more or less variation of the other, and in the...

* Correlation may be due to pure chance, especially ina small sample...
When more than one independent variable appears in a regression model, it is possible that these variables are related to or are dependent on each other.
If independent variables are related to each other, multicollinearity among the variables is said to exist. In general, whentwo or more...

* Correlational research cannot be used to establish a causal relationship between variables because of two problems

The purpose of correlation analysis is to measure and interpret the strength of a linear or nonlinear (eg, exponential, polynomial, and logistic) relationship between two continuous variables. When conducting correlation analysis, we use the term association to mean “linear...
. When such failings of financial organisations’ occur, such as the UBS scandal; does this affect the attitudes towards risk for other financial organisations’? In addition, is there a correlation between the risk attitude of companies and their volatility, or are they entirely two independent variables...
correlation between two independent variables is equal to 1 or -1. In practice, we rarely face perfect multicollinearity in a data set. More commonly, the issue of multicollinearity arises when there is a strong linear relationship among two or more independent variables.
Mathematically, a set of...

The statistical technique which can be used to study the relationship between two or more variables is called correlation analysis.
Definition:
Two or more variables are said to be correlated if the change in one variable results in a corresponding change in the other variable...
relationship is with a negative slope. When one goes up, the other tends to go down. The closer to zero has r has little linear relationship. Correlation only measures linear relationships

Rank Correlation
Data which are arranged in numerical order, usually from largest to smallest and numbered 1, 2, 3 ---- are said to be in ranks or ranked data. These ranks prove useful at certain times whentwo or more values of one variable are the same. The coefficient of correlation...
both of the variableshave close to perfect positive linear correlation. We can say that the weight of boys does affect to a certain extent the time they take in running a distance of 200 meters. Now we must find the coefficient of determination in order to give a much more exact definition about the...
