Pearson Product-Moment Correlation

Correlational Research

Briefly describe correlational research. Name a variable from this study and one from the workplace that might prove to provide a correlational relationship and explain why you would choose these two? What did you learn about correlation and causation?

Testing of significance of correlation coefficient

I know the answer for the following problem is : r=-0.69, df=10, not significant at 0.5 How do I get to that answer? An economist is interested in studying the relationships between length of unemployment and job seeking activity among white collar workers. He interviews a sample of 12 unemployment accountants as to th

Testing of hypothesis, Interpreataion of linear correlation

1. When using the F-statistic for hypothesis testing of the variance, which sample variance is the numerator and which sample variance is the denominator? 2. How do you interpret the linear correlation coefficient? 3. How do you test the equality of population variances? 4.How do you test the significant differences bet

1. Use the data to construct a scatter plot, then test for a linear correlation between pain intensity before and after the treatment. If there is a significant linear correlation, does it follow that the drug treatment is effective? 2. Find the equation of the regression line. Let the response (y) variable be the pain intensity after the treatment. What would be the equation of the regression line for a treatment having absolutely no effect?

Listed below are measures of pain intensity before and after using the proprietary drug Duragesic. The data are listed in order by row, and corresponding measures are from the same subject before and after the treatment. For example, the first subject had a measure of 1.2 before the treatment and a measure of 0.4 after the t

Pearson or Product-moment correlation

Could you explain the Pearson or product-moment correlation? If we were to use a partial correlation, would you want to look at the relationship between two variables while removing the effect of one or two other variables?

Correlation: Calculate and interpret the correlation between variables.

The product development team at Piggybank is wondering if there is a correlation between retail online sales and total retail sales, so calculate the correlation between online and total retail sales, and interpret the results. If your peers are struggling with the calculations, share examples and insights to help them along. Gi

Hypothesis testing using T-test, correlation

1. A teacher wants to describe the results of a particular test. The test grades were 88,78,79,69,83,82,90,94,95,87,85,83,88,89,90,65,76,88,62,90. What would be and how would you find the mean, median, mode, range, variance, standard deviation, an ordered array, a stem-and leaf, a box-and-whiskers and a bar chart of the class sc

Correlation Coefficient Calculated

1 (a) The following data was obtained for two variables, X & Y X 135 110 130 145 175 160 120 Y 145 100 120 120 130 130 110 (i) Plot a scatter diagram for this data (ii) Calculate the Pearson product moment correlation coefficient and the regression coefficients for this data (iii) This data set seems to contain an out

The reliability coefficient is examined.

The reliability coefficient is maximized when: a) The examinees are heterogeneous b) the examiners are homogeneous c) THe examinees are very similar d) Both b abd c are correct Answers are explained below.

Correlation Analysis & Pearson

I have tried these questions with no luck (see attached file). Is there a guide that you can provide that will help me figure out what test I should be using for certain data sets? Please help! Thanks you.
