Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman 5 Assumptions 1. The sample of paired data (x,y) is a random sample. 2. The pairs of (x,y) data have a bivariate normal distribution. Chapter 9. Section 9-1 and 9-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman 6 Definition Scatterplot (or scatter diagram) is a graph in which the paired (x,y) sample data are plotted with a horizontal x axis and a vertical y axis. Each individual (x,y) pair is plotted as a single point. Chapter 9. Section 9-1 and 9-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001.

Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman 12 Definition Linear Correlation Coefficient r measures strength of the linear relationship between paired x and y values in a sample r= nxy - (x)(y) n(x2) - (x)2 n(y2) - (y)2 Formula 9-1 Chapter 9.

Addison Wesley Longman 13 Definition Linear Correlation Coefficient r measures strength of the linear relationship between paired x and y values in a sample r= nxy - (x)(y) n(x2) - (x)2 n(y2) - (y)2 Formula 9-1 Calculators can compute r (rho) is the linear correlation coefficient for all paired data in the population.

Addison Wesley Longman 14 Notation for the Linear Correlation Coefficient n = number of pairs of data presented denotes the addition of the items indicated. x denotes the sum of all x values. x2 indicates that each x score should be squared and then those squares added. (x)2 indicates that the x scores should be added and the total then squared. xy indicates that each x score should be first multiplied by its corresponding y score. After obtaining all such products, find their sum. r represents linear correlation coefficient for a sample represents linear correlation coefficient for a population Chapter 9. Section 9-1 and 9-2.

Addison Wesley Longman 15 Rounding the Linear Correlation Coefficient r Round to three decimal places so that it can be compared to critical values in Table A-6 Use calculator or computer if possible Chapter 9. Section 9-1 and 9-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman 16 Interpreting the Linear Correlation Coefficient If the absolute value of r exceeds the value in Table A - 6, conclude that there is a significant linear correlation. Otherwise, there is not sufficient evidence to support the conclusion of significant linear correlation. Chapter 9. Section 9-1 and 9-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001.

Value of r does not change if all values of either variable are converted to a different scale. 3. The r is not affected by the choice of x and y. Interchange x and y and the value of r will not change. 4. r measures strength of a linear relationship. Chapter 9. Section 9-1 and 9-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman 19 Common Errors Involving Correlation 1. Causation: It is wrong to conclude that correlation implies causality. 2. Averages: Averages suppress individual variation and may inflate the correlation coefficient. 3. Linearity: There may be some relationship between x and y even when there is no significant linear correlation. Chapter 9. Section 9-1 and 9-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition.

Section 9-1 and 9-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman 22 Method 1: Test Statistic is t (follows format of earlier chapters) Test statistic: t= r 1-r2 n-2 Chapter 9. Section 9-1 and 9-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman 23 Method 1: Test Statistic is t (follows format of earlier chapters) Test statistic: t= r 1-r2 n-2 Critical values: use Table A-3 with degrees of freedom = n - 2 Chapter 9.

If you fail to reject H0, then there is not sufficient evidence to conclude that there is linear correlation. Chapter 9. Section 9-1 and 9-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition.

Addison Wesley Longman 33 Is there a significant linear correlation? 0.842 > 0.707, That is the test statistic does fall within the critical region. Therefore, we REJECT H0: = 0 (no correlation) and conclude there is a significant linear correlation between the weights of discarded plastic and household size.
