10.001: Correlation and Regression

R. Sureshkumar

In the last two classes, we learned to compute statistical measures from a sample of observations on a statistical variable. Moreover, we discussed how the sample statistics can be used to arrive at a model for the entire population. Today, we discuss how we can measure the correlation, i.e., the degree of linear association, between two statistical variables. Once again, let's try to learn the key concepts through an example.
