  1. correlation

    Correlation is a statistical measure that determines the degree to which two or more variables are related to or influence each other. Positive correlation signifies that if one variable increases, the other will also increase, and if one decreases, the other will decrease as well. Negative correlation signifies that if one variable increases, the other decreases, and vice versa. The correlation coefficient usually lies in the interval -1 to 1, where 1 indicates a perfect positive correlation, -1 indicates a perfect negative correlation, and 0 indicates no correlation at all.
