Pearson Correlation ------------------- Linear regression is similar to correlation in that the purpose is to measure to what extent there is a linear relationship between two variables. The major difference between the two is that correlation makes no distinction between independent and dependent variables while linear regression does. ρ = population correlation coefficient. ρ = (1/N)Σ[(xi - μx)/σx][(yi - μy)/σy] Pearson r = sample correlation coefficient.   _  _ r = (1/(n - 1))Σ[(xi - x)/sx][(yi - y)/sy] SSxy = ------------------------------------- (n - 1)√[(SSxx/(n - 1)]√[SSyy/(n - 1)] SSxy = ---------- √(SSxxSSyy) Alternatively, r = √(SSM/Total SS) Where: _ _ SSxy = Σ(xi - x)(yi - y) _ SSxx = Σ(xi - x)2 _ SSyy = Σ(yi - y)2 Total SS = Model SS + Error SS = SSM + SSE   _   _ Σ(yi - y)2 = Σ(yp - y)2 + Σ(yi - yp)2    _    = Σ(yp - y)2 + Σ(yi - (βxi + α))2 Coefficient of Determination: r2 = Proportion of the variance of the dependent variable (y)   that is explained by the independent variable (x). = (SSyy - SSE)/SSyy Hypotheses: If there is a significant correlation between the variables, r will not equal zero. H0: ρ = 0 H1: ρ ≠ 0 Test statistic: t test = r√[(n - 2)/(1 - r2)] = β/sβ = β/(s/√SSxx) The test has n - 2 df. General rule of thumb: ρ: 0.10 - 0.29 small correlation 0.30 - 0.49 medium correlation 0.50 - 1.0 strong correlation A simple example:     _  _    _  _ xi yi (xi - x)2 (yi - y)2 (xi - x)(yi - y) - --- ------- ------- -------------- 1 1.9 2.25 0.8556 1.3875 2 2.3 0.25 0.2756 0.2625 3 2.8 0.25 0.0006 -0.0125 4 4.3 2.25 2.1756 2.2125 - --- ---- ------ ------ Σ 5.00 3.3075 3.8500 _ x = 2.5000 _ y = 2.8250 SSxx = 5.0000 SSxy = 3.8500 SSyy = 3.3075 β = SSxy/SSxy = 3.8500/5.0000 = 0.7700 SSE = SSyy - βSSxy = 3.3075 - 0.7700*3.8500 = 0.3430 = Σ(yi - yp)2 = 0.3430    _ yi yp (yi - yp)2 (yp - y)2 --- ---- ------ ------ 1.9 1.67 0.0529 1.3340 2.3 2.44 0.0196 0.1482 2.8 3.21 0.1681 0.1482 4.3 3.98 0.1024 1.3340 ------ ------ Σ 0.3430 2.9645 Total SS = SSM + SSE   _  _ Σ(yi - y)2 = Σ(yp - y)2 + Σ(yi - yp)2 3.3075 = 2.9645 + 0.3430 Coefficient of Correlation: r = √(SSM/Total SS) = √(2.9645/3.3075) = 0.9466 = SSxy/√(SSxxSSyy) = 3.8500/√(5.0000*3.3075) = 0.9466 Coefficient of Determination: r2 = (SSyy - SSE)/SSyy = (3.3075 - 0.3430)/3.3075 = 0.8963 s2 = SSE/(n - 2) = 0.3430/2 = 0.1715 ∴ s = 0.4141 t = β/(s/√SSxx) = 0.77/(0.4141/√5.0000) = 4.158 t test = r√[(n - 2)/(1 - r2)] = 0.9466√[2/(1 - 0.8962)] = 4.155 t0.05/2 for 4 - 2 = 2 df is 4.303 (2-tailed). Therefore, reject H0. SPSS: Analyze>Correlate>Bivariate Multiple Correlation -------------------- Because we now have multiple variables, we have more than one correlation value to consider => partial correlation coefficient. PCC is the measure of the correlation between the dependent variable and one independent variable holding constant the influence of all other independent variables. Correlation matrix: x1 x2 x3 x4 x2 1 ? ? x3 ? 1 ? x4 ? ? 1 Test statistic: One-sample t test = r√[(n - 2)/(1 - r2)] SPSS: Analyze>Correlate>Bivariate
