## Study Notes

### Course Overview

- TTM4C04: Business Statistics and Information Technology II
- Credits: 4
- Lecture hours: 5
- Objective: To provide an understanding of tourism, travel industry management, and computer applications in the context of information technology.

### Module Objectives

- To understand the importance of statistical tools and techniques in business decision-making
- To apply statistical methods to analyze and interpret business data
- To use computer applications to visualize and present business data

### Correlation Analysis

- Correlation analysis is used to identify the strength and direction of the relationship between two variables
- Coefficient of correlation (r) measures the degree of correlation between two variables
- Correlation coefficient values:
- r = 1: perfect positive correlation
- r = -1: perfect negative correlation
- r = 0: no correlation

- Types of correlation:
- Positive correlation: as one variable increases, the other variable also increases
- Negative correlation: as one variable increases, the other variable decreases
- No correlation: no relationship between the two variables

### Interpreting Correlation Coefficients

- Strength of correlation:
- Strong correlation: r â‰¥ 0.7
- Moderate correlation: 0.3 â‰¤ r â‰¤ 0.7
- Weak correlation: 0.1 â‰¤ r â‰¤ 0.3
- No correlation: r â‰¤ 0.1

- Direction of correlation:
- Positive direction: r > 0
- Negative direction: r < 0

### Scatter Diagrams

- A scatter diagram is a graphical representation of the relationship between two variables
- Uses:
- To identify the strength and direction of the correlation
- To detect patterns and outliers in the data

- Types of scatter diagrams:
- Positive scatter diagram: indicates a positive correlation
- Negative scatter diagram: indicates a negative correlation
- Random scatter diagram: indicates no correlation
