1. ### finding the effect of X on the relationship between Y and Z

I had a huge explanation and it got deleted, so here's a briefer version: I'm trying to find whether high trait empathy predicts a greater effect of self-other differences in status on state empathy and helping. I have differences coded as -1/1 (diff/sim). In the zero-order...
2. ### Relative size of a p-value for a second hypothesis, compared to the first.

Hi all, I apologise in advance if this is a very easy question - I may be struggling with the wording, or I might just be a bit slow. The obtained p value for a correlation analysis is .036 where n = 50. If an analysis had been undertaken with n = 90, and the same sample correlation value was...
3. ### Why does a larger sample size produce a smaller p-value?

Hi, I need help with this problem... The obtained p value for a correlation analysis is .036, for a sample size is 50. If the analysis had been undertaken with n = 90, and the same sample correlation value was again observed, what would be the relative size of the p value for the second...
4. ### Find correlation when SD and mean are given

A guy got 88 in his test which has mean score of 64 with SD 8. He missed the second exam in which the meanscore was 45 and SD was 5. He got a prorated marks of 55. The prof used regression to get his second test marks. What was the corelation between 2 exams ? P.S: I would really appreciate...

I have data from participants who rate emotional content of pictures. Specifically, people see 20 pictures of abstract paintings (one at a time) and are asked, "what emotions is expressed in the picture?" There are 5 response options: anger, fear, sadness, happiness, and none. The key info here...
6. ### setting parameters in G*power for correlation tests

Hello, everyone :) Need your help on how to set parameters in G*power... I am doing two very simple tests: one on pearson correlation between midterm scores and quiz another one on partial correlation between the same scores with motivation score as controlling variable. I need to run a...
7. ### Online-estimate of squared correlation coefficient for linear optimization

Summary: Is there a way to directly estimate the squared correlation between two zero-mean Gaussian variables on-line and without storing more than two samples at any given time? Dear all, I am working on an optimization procedure to minimize the correlation between two zero-mean normally...
8. ### Correlation and significance with dependent observations

Hi, I am trying to correlate two variables of which one variable has dependent observations as it is data derived from a social network. I am intending to use Spearman's rank correlation coefficient. As I understand conventional methods for significance test do not provide reliable results...
9. ### Trying to evaluate/measure how much 1 variable affects another.

Hello. So I've been helping look at some data for a fundraising event my school ran. We used an app and the school wants to evaluate if it is worth it. From the event I have the data of all donations (how much it was and who it went to). So what was done is for all fundraisers the sum of all...
10. ### Whats the best way to analyse the correlation between these two variables?

Hello All, I have to admit my statistics skills are not amazing however, i'm very interested in improving my knowledge. I've been trying to work out a way to see if there is a correlation between the number of troops in iraq and Afghanistan (BOG) and the price of an index that only deals in...
11. ### Searching for analysis that would compare two trends of data

How to find correlation between two curves Hello, glad to be here. I am looking for an appropriate statistical analysis to address a problem similar to the one described below: Lets say I want to find out how a performance on one test correlates with a performance on a different test across...

Hi, I have an environmental science issue where I'm trying to see if there is a correlation between some qualitative and quantitative data. (Hopefully I'm posting this in the right place). Basically at my work we have ecological contractors who assess whether particular natural areas have...
14. ### Correlating values to different characteristics

Hello, I'm trying to figure out the best way to correlate a number of values against a set of discrete characteristics for a small population. In the attached example I have 3 different sets of values and two different characteristcs. It is obvious to the eye that the first two sets of values...
15. ### Correlation?

Hello all, I have accuracy scores on 6 different tests. I have calculated the percentage of the accuracy in each test so that each of the tests has a score on the same scale (0-100%). I want to see how well do each of the 6 different tests correlate with a 7th test. I have been told I should...
16. ### Correlation based on binary events

I have a system with 5 components. Every 10 seconds the signal travels to all of them and I know how many of them responded. I need to know there there is a correlation in response. So, my time series data looks something like: A B C D E ----------------------- 1 0 1...
