## Questions and Answers

What is the value range of the correlation coefficient?

+1 to -1

What is denoted by 'r' in correlation analysis?

Correlation coefficient

How is the Spearman’s coefficient of rank correlation computed?

Rank the data, calculate the differences in ranks for each variable, square the differences, sum the squared differences, and use the formula to calculate the coefficient.

## Study Notes

### Univariate, Bivariate, and Multivariate Data

- Univariate data: involves one variable
- Bivariate data: involves two variables
- Multivariate data: involves three or more variables

### Measures of Central Tendency

- Median: a measure of central tendency, example: median is 36
- Mode: a measure of central tendency, not often used as it is ill-defined

### Measures of Dispersion

- Range: a measure of dispersion
- Quartile Deviation (Semi Inter-quartile Range): a measure of dispersion
- Mean Deviation or Average Deviation:
- about Mean
- about Median

- Mean Deviation for Continuous Series: a measure of dispersion

### Skewness and Kurtosis

- Skewness: a measure of asymmetry of a distribution
- Kurtosis: a measure of peakedness of a distribution

### Probability Distributions

- Binomial Distribution: a discrete probability distribution
- Poisson's Distribution: a discrete probability distribution
- Normal Distribution: a continuous probability distribution
- also known as continuous distribution
- variables can take all values in a given interval
- total area represents total number of observations

### Normal Distribution

- Area under the Normal Curve: used to find probability
- Example: finding the percentage of defective washers produced by a machine, assuming the diameters are normally distributed

### Correlation Analysis

- Correlation Coefficient (r): a quantitative measure of strength in the linear relationship between two variables
- value lies between +1 to -1

- Methods of finding correlation:
- Scatter Diagram
- Karl Pearson's Coefficient of Correlation
- Rank Correlation Method

- Coefficient of Correlation: a measure of strength and direction of linear relationship between two variables

### Spearman's Rank Correlation Coefficient

- used when ranks are given
- example: computing the Spearman's coefficient of rank correlation between academic achievement and family income
