Pearson's correlation coefficient

n
(Statistics) a statistic measuring the linear relationship between two variables in a sample and used as an estimate of the correlation in the whole population, given by r = Cov (X, Y)/√[(Var(X).Var(Y)]. In full: Pearson's product moment correlation coefficient
[named after Karl Pearson (1857–1936), British mathematician]

Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficients were utilized to examine the relationship of the score for extroversion, neuroticism, SDS, and HPI with the MPDQ score.
The mean scores for the MPDQ, HPI, extroversion, neuroticism, and SDS, as well as Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficients between the score of the MPDQ and the scores of the other variables are shown in Table 1.
