Question

Examining two variables, suppose that you calculate the correlation coefficient to be equal to 0.14. How would you best describe this correlation?

A. Weak positive correlation

B. Strong negative correlation

C. Strong positive correlation

D. Weak negative correlation

Answer #1

Ans: Weak positive correlation

**Explanation:**

Coefficient of correlation is mentioned as 'r'

The value of *r* lies between -1 < *r* < +1. The + sign shows
positive linear correlations and - sign shows negative linear
correlations, respectively.

If *r* is close to +1, it means there is a strong
positive correlation between two variables.

If *r* far away from +1, it means there is a weak
positive correlation between two variables.

If *r* is close to -1, it means there is a strong
negative correlation between two variables.

If *r* far away from -1, it means there is a weak
negative correlation between two variables.

Since 0.14 is away from +1, it means there is a weak positive correlation between two variables

A coefficient of correlation of -0.9 indicates the relationship
between the two variables is
(a) weak and negative
(b) strong and positive
(c) strong and negative

A correlation coefficient of - .09 between variables X and Y
would be interpreted as indicating ______ between the
variables.
a. weak-positive?
b. strong positive?
c. weak negative?
d.strong negative?

Suppose the correlation coefficient between two variables is
found to be 0.83. Which of the following statements are true?
small values of one variable are associated with large values of
the other variable
the relationship between the variables is weak
a scatter plot of the points would show an upward trend
low values of one variable tend to be paired with low values of
the other variable
there is a strong positive curvilinear relationship between the
variables
there is a...

When you are presented with a Pearson’s correlation
coefficient between two variables for which an increase in one
predicts a decrease in the other, and vice versa, the Pearson’s
number will be
zero; the Pearson number is only meaningful if the
variables move in the same direction as one another
close to -1 if the correlation is strong, negative but
near zero if the correlation is weak
close to -1 if the correlation is strong, close to +1
if the...

A) Two variables have a high covariance. This means the two
variables have a strong relationship. T/F
B) For a variable x, the sample mean is 8 and the sample
standard deviation is 2. One of the observations is 15. Is this
observation an outlier?
Group of answer choices
Yes, the z-score is greater than 3
No, the z-score is between -3 and 3
Yes, the z-score is between -3 and 3
No, the z-score is less than -3
C)...

b. Spearman’s Correlation. Identify two
variables for which you could calculate a Spearman’s
correlation coefficient. Describe the variables and their scale of
measurement. Now, assume you conducted a
correlation and came up with a significant positive or negative
value. Create a mock r value (for example, .3 or -.2). Report your
mock finding in APA style (note the text does not use APA style)
and interpret the statistic in terms of effect size and R2 while
also taking into account...

Correlation is a visual method for determining the relationship
between two variables... including linear, curve linear, strong,
weak, positive, negative, and no relationships. The correlation
coefficient is a mathematical reflection of that relationship.
Regression analysis is the same thing as the correlation
coefficient. True or False

Suppose we have the correlation coefficient for the relationship
between two variables, A and B. Determine whether each of the
following statement is true or false.
(a) The variables A and B are categorical.
(b) The correlation coefficient tells us whether A or B is the
explanatory variable.
(c) If the correlation coefficient is positive, then lower values
of variable A tend to correspond to lower values of variable
B.
(d) If the correlation between A and B is r...

For the following data (a) display the data in a scatter plot,
(b) calculate the correlation coefficient r, and (c) make a
conclusion about the type of correlation. The ages (in years) of 6
children and the number of words in their vocabulary. (b) The
correlation coefficient r is nothing. (Round to three decimal
places as needed.) (c) Which of the following best describes the
type of correlation that exists between age and vocabulary size?
A. Weak positive linear correlation...
