Chapter 8 – Correlation and regression. After studying this chapter you will be able to understand: Define and interpret a scatter plot, calculate and interpret a sample covariance, calculate and interpret a sample correlation coefficient, explain how outliers can affect correlations,...
Phân tích tương quan (Correlation) là kỹ thuật rất thường dùng trong thống kê y học nhằm khảo sát mối liên quan giữa 2 biến số đo trên cùng các đối tượng thông qua hệ số tương quan (correlation coefficient). Có nhiều loại hệ số tương quan (HSTQ) nhưng bài này chỉ trình bày hệ số tương quan r của Pearson (Pearson r correlation coefficient). Pearson r là số đo mối liên quan tuyến tính của 2 biến số, và được sử dụng khi 2 biến số thuộc thang đo lường tỉ số hoặc thang khoảng.

In a world where ownership is divorced from control, characterised by economic and geo-political uncertainty, our companion text Portfolio Theory and Financial Analyses (PTFA henceforth) began with the following question. We then observed that if investors are rational and capital markets are efficient with a large number of constituents,economic variables (such as share prices and returns) should be random, which simplifies matters.
Once a company issues shares (common stock) and receives the proceeds, it has no direct involvement with their subsequent transactions on the capital market, or the price at which they are traded. These are matters for negotiation between existing shareholders and prospective investors, based on their own financial agenda.
When sitting in statistics classes or when trying to read and understand
statistical material, too many otherwise intelligent and capable students and
researchers feel dumb. This book is intended as an antidote. It is designed to
make you feel smart and competent. Its approach is conservative in that it
attempts to identify and present the essentials of data analysis as developed by
statisticians over the last two or three centuries.
In the first edition of this book, I claimed that humanity could be divided into three
groups: (1) those who conduct their own research studies, (2) those who do not formally
engage in the research process but nonetheless encounter the results of others’
investigations, and (3) those who are neither “makers” nor “consumers” of research
claims. Now, nearly 40 years since I made that statement, I still believe that every
person on the face of the Earth can be classified into one of those three groups.
elasticity is now slightly below one at 0.92. A higher rate of urbanization
has the expected positive impact on emissions. The share of population in
the economically active age groups now becomes marginally insignificant.
The reason for this could be the high correlation between the two variables
(partial correlation coefficient of 0.65).
Lastly, in column V we add the average household size to our model.
Note that this variable is available for all countries in the sample, but not
over the entire estimation period.
This connection can be shown empirically, e.g. for commodities. Gorton and
Rouwenhorst show that the yields on commodities futures have a negative
correlation with the yields on long-dated bonds and – for long holding periods –
with equities. Commodities futures could therefore be employed effectively in
order to diversify equity and bond portfolios.
On the other hand, according to
Yee’s analysis, high correlation coefficients are evident in a comparison of the
yields on financial assets with those of metal or energy producers or with
Note that the population
share of the economically active age groups now becomes more clearly
insignificant. This suggests that its initial statistical significance might be
entirely due to its correlation with the urbanization rate as pointed out above
and its correlation with the average household size (partial correlation
coefficient of )0.58). In other words, it would appear that the urbanization
rate and average household size are the demographic factors that really
A web search with double checking model is proposed to explore the web as a live corpus. Five association measures including variants of Dice, Overlap Ratio, Jaccard, and Cosine, as well as CoOccurrence Double Check (CODC), are presented. In the experiments on Rubenstein-Goodenough’s benchmark data set, the CODC measure achieves correlation coefficient 0.8492, which competes with the performance (0.8914) of the model using WordNet.
The kinetics of the reversible thermal unfolding, irreversible
thermal unfolding, and reductive unfolding processes of
bovine pancreatic ribonuclease A (RNase A) were investi-gated in NaCl/Pi solutions. Image parameters including
Shannon entropy, Hamming distance, mutual information
and correlation coefficient were used in the analysis of the
CD and 1D NMR spectra. The irreversible thermal
unfolding transition of RNase A was not a cooperative
process, pretransitional structure changes occur before the
main thermal denaturation....
Charities Invest in Volunteers in a Variety of Ways.
Thus far, we have discussed investments in paid staff and
in volunteer management practices. Hiring someone who
has training in volunteer management also demonstrates
a greater investment in volunteer management. To derive
an overall assessment of investment in volunteer management,
we combined these three items into a single measure,
Investments and Benefits Vary Together. We expect
that the charities that invest in volunteers will be those
that say they derive greatest benefits from volunteers.
This chapter explains the use of several techniques including correlation analysis and regression analysis. After reading this chapter, you should understand: How correlation analysis may be applied to study relationships between two or more variables; the uses, requirements, and interpretation of the product moment correlation coefficient;...
