cor·re·la·tion

 (kôr′ə-lā′shən, kŏr′-)
n.
1. A relationship or connection between two things based on co-occurrence or pattern of change: a correlation between drug abuse and crime.
2. Statistics The tendency for two values or variables to change together, in either the same or opposite way: As cigarette smoking increases, so does the incidence of lung cancer, indicating a positive correlation.
3. An act of correlating or the condition of being correlated.

[Medieval Latin correlātiō, correlātiōn- : Latin com-, com- + Latin relātiō, relation, report (from relātus, past participle of referre, to carry back; see relate).]

cor′re·la′tion·al adj.

correlation

(ˌkɒrɪˈleɪʃən)
n
1. a mutual or reciprocal relationship between two or more things
2. the act or process of correlating or the state of being correlated
3. (Statistics) statistics the extent of correspondence between the ordering of two variables. Correlation is positive or direct when two variables move in the same direction and negative or inverse when they move in opposite directions
[C16: from Medieval Latin correlātiō, from com- together + relātiō, relation]

correlational analysis - the use of statistical correlation to evaluate the strength of the relations between variables
curvilinear correlation, nonlinear correlation, skew correlation - any correlation in which the rates of change of the variables is not constant
partial correlation - a correlation between two variables when the effects of one or more related variables are removed
direct correlation, positive correlation - a correlation in which large values of one variable are associated with large values of the other and small with small; the correlation coefficient is between 0 and +1
indirect correlation, negative correlation - a correlation in which large values of one variable are associated with small values of the other; the correlation coefficient is between 0 and -1
spurious correlation - a correlation between two variables (e.g., between the number of electric motors in the home and grades at school) that does not result from any direct relation between them (buying electric motors will not raise grades) but from their relation to other variables
