Correlation Scatter Plot Overview

Use this module to make a scatter plot of one variable against another through all patterns.  The module computes the linear correlation coefficient between two variables.

 

The linear correlation coefficient is a statistical measure of the strength of the relationship between the two characteristics that are graphed in the scatter plot.   The r coefficient can range from -1 to +1 .  The closer r is to 1, the stronger the positive linear relationship, and the closer r is to -1, the stronger the negative linear relationship.  When r is near 0 there is no linear relationship.
