Linear regression r square?

r square is a measure of the linear relationship between the variables. The nearer r squared is to one, the stronger the linear relationship. However, a linear relatinship is NOT a causal relationship. Also the absence of a large r square is not evidence of no relationship: there may well be a non-linear relationship. It is commonly accepted that for scientific purposes, a very minimum of 0.98 is accepted for r2. This is because 0.98 actually allows for quite a variance (by eye)

What is true about correlation?

It is a measure of the strength of a linear relationship between one dependent variable and one or more explanatory variables.It is very important to recognise that a high level of correlation does not imply causation. Also, it does not provide information on non-linear relationships.

What is positive linear relationship?

Positive Linear Relationships are is there is a relationship in the situation. In some equations they aren't linear, but other relationships are, that's a positive linear Relationship.

How many types of correlation?

There are 3 types1.positive/ negative/zero/2.linear/non-linear3.simple/multiple/partial- If the direction is same,the relationship is positive-If the direction is opposite , the relationship is negative-If the amount of change is constant in different variable it is linear-If the amount of change is not constant in different variable is non- linear-If it is establishing a relationship between two characteristic then it is simple- If it is establishing a relationship between three or more characteristic then it is multiple-If it is establishing a relationship between only one of all the variable then it is partial

What does Pearson's linear correlation coefficient measure?

Strength and direction of linear relation. Closer to 1 is positive linear association, closer to -1 is positive negative association and closer to 0 means no linear relation. Remember that 0 does not mean that there is no relation - just no linear relation.
