# What is negative correlation?

when one variable decreases, the other variable does the same.

### What shows a correlation which may be positive or negative between two sets of data?

I believe you are asking how to identify a positive or negative correlation between two variables, for which you have data. I'll call these variables x and y. Of course, you can always calculate the correlation coefficient, but you can see the correlation from a graph. An x-y graph that shows a positive trend (slope positive) indicates a positive correlation. An x-y graph that shows a negative trend (slope negative) indicates a negative correlation.

### What is the range of correlation coefficient and what does its value tell?

The product-moment correlation coefficient or PMCC should have a value between -1 and 1. A positive value shows a positive linear correlation, and a negative value shows a negative linear correlation. At zero, there is no linear correlation, and the correlation becomes stronger as the value moves further from 0.

### What does it mean if two variables have a negative correlation?

A positive correlation between two variables, say X and Y, means that if one increases, the other will too. No correlation means that they are not related. A negative correlation means that as one increases, the other decreases. Normally you will see this in studies as "Recent studies demonstrated a positive correlation between eating too much and obesity." Or, "recent studies demonstrate a negative correlation between a healthy, balanced diet and obesity".

### What is a negative correlation mean?

A negative correlation highlights the similarity of opposites. In a negative correlation, as the value of variable a increases, the value of variable b decreases. It can work the other way too, as the value of a decreases, the value of b increases. A negative correlation is also routinely referred to as an inverse. For instance, every time a person goes to jail, there is one less person in the work force. Therefore, incarceration rates…

### Do the height of a NBA players in relationship to their shoe size represents a negative correlation?

### When you have a scatter plot and you have to choose a correlation I know Positive Negative and no correlation are options Is moderate correlation an option?

Yes. * A positive correlation is when the dependant variable increases as the independent one does. * A negative correlation is when the dependant variable decreases as the independent one increases. * Perfect correlation is when all the points lie along a straight line; no correlation is when the points lie all over the place. In calculating the correlation coefficient it can have a value between -1 and 1, with 0 indication no correlation and…
