When increases in the values of one variable are associated with increases in the values of a second variable what type of relationship is present?

Positive correlation is a relationship between two variables in which both variables move in tandem—that is, in the same direction. A positive correlation exists when one variable decreases as the other variable decreases, or one variable increases while the other increases.

What type of correlation which there is no relationship between two variable?

A zero correlation exists when there is no relationship between two variables. For example there is no relationship between the amount of tea drunk and level of intelligence.

What type of correlation is there when variables change in the opposite direction?

A negative correlation is a relationship between two variables that move in opposite directions. In other words, when variable A increases, variable B decreases. A negative correlation is also known as an inverse correlation.

When coefficient of correlation lies between 0.25 and 0.75 it is called?

(b)Moderate Correlation :When Correlation between two series is neither large nor small, it is called Moderate degree of Correlation . In this case value of r lies between±0.25and±0.75. (c)Low Correlation :When the Correlation coefficient between two series is very small, it is called Low degree Correlation.

What is difference between positive correlation and negative correlation?

A positive correlation means that the variables move in the same direction. Put another way, it means that as one variable increases so does the other, and conversely, when one variable decreases so does the other. A negative correlation means that the variables move in opposite directions.

When coefficient of correlation lies between 0.75 and 1 it is called?

Correlation between two variables lies between 0.75 and 1. It is high degree of correlations.

What are some real life examples of positive correlation?

Common Examples of Positive Correlations. The more time you spend running on a treadmill, the more calories you will burn. Taller people have larger shoe sizes and shorter people have smaller shoe sizes. The longer your hair grows, the more shampoo you will need.

Do the two variables have a positive or a negative association?

Two variables have a positive association when the values of one variable tend to increase as the values of the other variable increase. Two variables have a negative association when the values of one variable tend to decrease as the values of the other variable increase.
