Correlation Research

Correlation Research in which the relationship between the two sets of variables is examined to determine whether they are associated or “correlated”.

The strength and direction of the relationship between the two variables are represented by a mathematical statistic known as a correlation (or, more formally, a correlation coefficient), which can range from +1.0 to -1.0.
