can be used for data in the form of
of numbers. The result will be a bunch of points "scattered" around the plane.
If the general tendency is for the points to rise to the right of the graph, then we say there is a
between the two variables measured. If the points fall to the left of the graph, we say there is
. If there is no general tendency, then there is
If the tendency is not very pronounced - that is, the points are scattered widely - then we say the variables are
. If the correlation is more pronounced, we say the variables are
