1. rank-difference correlation coefficient

The rank-difference correlation coefficient, also known as the Spearman's rank correlation or Spearman's rho, is a measure of statistical dependence between the rankings of two variables. It assesses how well the relationship between two variables can be described using a monotonic function. In simpler terms, it depicts the strength and direction of the association between two ranked variables. A positive coefficient indicates an increasing relationship while a negative coefficient suggests a decreasing relationship. A rank-difference correlation coefficient of zero suggests no relation at all.
