1 SIMPLE LINEAR CORRELATION Simple linear correlation is a measure of the degree to which two variables vary together, or a measure of the intensity of the association between two variables. Correlation often is abused. You need to show that one variable actually is affecting another variable. The parameter being measure is (rho) and is estimated by the statistic r, the correlation coefficient. r can range from -1 to 1, and is independent of units of measurement. The strength of the association increases as r approaches the absolute value of 1.0 A value of 0 indicates there is no association between the two variables tested. A better estimate of r usually can be obtained by calculating r on treatment means averaged across replicates. Correlation does not have to be performed only between independent and dependent variables. Correlation can be done on two dependent variables. The X and Y in the equation to determine r do not necessarily correspond between a independent and dependent variable, respectively. Scatter plots are a useful means of getting a better understanding of your data Positive association Negative association No association

2 The formula for r is: r X Y XY - = n SSCP = 2 2 ( X X) ( Y Y) (SSX)(SSY) Example 1 X Y XY X = 276 Y = 367 XY =21,383 X 2 = 16,232 Y 2 = 28,833 n = 5 Step 1. Calculate SSCP (276)(367) SSCP = 21,383 = Step 2. Calculate SS X 276 SS X = 16, = Step 3. Calculate SS Y 367 SS Y = 28, =

3 Step 4. Calculate the correlation coefficient r SSCP r = = = (SSX)(SSY) (996.8)(1895.2) Testing the Hypothesis That an Association Between X and Y Exists To determine if an association between two variables exists as determined using correlation, the following hypotheses are tested: H o : = 0 H A : 0 Notice that this correlation is testing to see if r is significantly different from zero, i.e., there is an association between the two variables evaluated. You are not testing to determine if there is a SIGNIFICANT CORRELATION. This cannot be tested. Critical or tabular values of r to test the hypothesis H o : = 0 can be found in tables, in which: o The df are equal to n-2 o The number of independent variables will equal one for all simple linear correlation. The tabular r-value, r.05, 3 df = Because the calculated r (.818) is less than the table r value (.878), we fail to reject H o : = 0 at the 95% level of confidence. We can conclude that there is no association between X and Y. In this example, it would appear that the association between X and Y is strong because the r value is fairly high. Yet, the test of H o : = 0 indicates that there is not a linear relationship. Points to Consider 1. The tabular r values are highly dependent on n, the number of observations. 2. As n increases, the tabular r value decreases. 3. We are more likely to reject H o : = 0 as n increases.

4 4. As n approaches 100, the r value to reject H o : = 0 becomes fairly small. Too many people abuse correlation by not reporting the r value and stating incorrectly that there is a significant correlation. The failure to accept H o : = 0 says nothing about the strength of the association between the two variables measured. 5. The correlation coefficient squared equals the coefficient of determination. Yet, you need to be careful if you decide to calculate r by taking the square root of the coefficient of determination. You may not have the correct sign is there is a negative association between the two variables.

6 Example 2 Assume X is the independent variable and Y is the dependent variable, n = 150, and the correlation between the two variables is r = This value of r is significantly different from zero at the 99% level of confidence. Calculating r 2 using r, = 0.09, we find that 9% of the variation in Y can be explained by having X in the model. This indicates that even though the r value is significantly different from zero, the association between X and Y is weak. Some people feel the coefficient of determination needs to be greater that 0.50 (i.e. r = 0.71) before the relationship between X an Y is very meaningful. Calculating r Combined Across Experiments, Locations, Runs, etc. This is another area where correlation is abused. When calculating the pooled correlation across experiments, you cannot just put the data into one data set and calculate r directly. The value of r that will be calculated is not a reliable estimate of. A better method of estimating would be to: 1. Calculate a value of r for each environment, and 2. Average the r values across environments. The proper method of calculating a pooled r value is to test the homogeneity of the correlation coefficients from the different locations. If the r values are homogenous, a pooled r value can be calculated. Example The correlation between grain yield and kernel plumpness was 0.43 at Langdon, ND; 0.32 at Prosper, ND; and 0.27 at Carrington, ND. There were 25 cultivars evaluated at each location. Step 1. Make and complete the following table Location n r i Z i Z i - Z w (n i -3)(Z i - Z w ) 2 Langdon, ND Prosper, ND Carrington, ND n i =75 Z w = χ 2 = 0.388

7 Where: Z i ' " = 0.5ln (1+ r i) % \$ ' #(1 r i )& Z w ' [(n i 3)Z ' i ] = (n i 3) χ 2 = ' ' [(n i 3)(Z i Z w ) 2 ] df = n 1 for χ 2 test Step 2. Look up tabular χ 2 value at the α = level. χ , 2 df = 10.6 Step 3. Make conclusions Because the calculated χ 2 (0.388) is less than the table χ 2 value (10.6), we fail to reject the null hypothesis that the r-values from the three locations are equal.

8 Step 4. Calculate pooled r (r p ) value i W 2Z e 1 r p = ' 2Z e W + 1 Where e = (0.356) e 1 Therefore r p = = (0.356) e + 1 Step 5. Determine if r p is significantly different from zero using a confidence interval. r p ± ( 3) ni CI = = 0.341± = 0.341± Therefore LCI = and UCI = Since the CI does not include zero, we reject the hypothesis that the pooled correlation value is equal to zero.
