    Correlation of two variables through others

    Hi, I have two data sets. In both sets there are 3 of the same variables (density, MOE and frequency). In addition to that, each set has one more variable (tension strength and bending strength). Since i can not measure both strengths on one piece, I would like to estimate the correlation (or...

    Relationship between a variable with categories and a variable with numbers?

    In SPSS, is there a way to find out if there is a siginificant relationship between symptoms (on a scale from 0-3, with 3 = the worst) and hospital stay ("yes" or "no") are related?

    Can I use chi-square for one nominal and one ordinal variable?

    Can I use chi-square test of independence if one variable is nominal and the other is ordinal, or do both have to be nominal?

    Is this an interval variable?

    The variable is called "externalizing behaviours" and it has the numbers 9,7,7,3,11,6,2,6,6,9. I assume that the numbers show the amount of externalizing behaviour because the question says it was an observation. Is this interval/ratio? I think it is interval (rather than ordinal) because 7 is...

    Generating data from exponential distribution in r.

    Suppose X~exp(.67), Y~exp(.8), Z~exp(.43). X and Y are correlated with a correlation coefficient of -0.6. Again X and Z are correlated with a correlation coefficient of -0.6. How can I generate data from X, Y and Z by incorporating this correlation. I know if they were uncorrelated, I could...

    is multiple regression the right choice for me?

    I am trying to ascertain the relationship between three variables; two independent and one dependent so I'm fairly confident that a multiple regression would be the correct choice. However I'm not sure if this is correct because of the fact that I have repeated measures. I have repeated...

    Zero order correlation negative, Direct effect Positive

    Hi, I am performing mediation analysis, and have first of all looked at the correlation between variables. The zero order correlation between X and Y is positive and significant. However in the mediation analysis, the direct effect of X on Y (after holding the mediator constant) has a...

    Is there a Correlation metric for Categorical vs Numerical features?

    I've been searching for some time for a correlation metric analogous to the Pearson correlation value for numerical vs numerical features, or Cramér's V for categorical vs categorical features, but this time for categorical vs numerical features. This is my toy data example in Python, where...
