    Analytical solution to correlation between two linear combinations of values

    Greetings, Suppose I have two linear combinations of values as follows: Y1 = B11*X1 + B12*X2 + B13*X3 Y2 = B21*X1 + B22*X2 + B23*X3 where X1 ~ N(0,1) and X2 ~N(0,1) and X3 ~N(0,1) Can corrY1,Y2 be derived analytically, that is, without me simulating numerous instances of Y1 and Y2 and doing...

    Calculating correlation with unknown sample size

    Hello, friends. Here is the question that I would like answered. I have literally been sitting here for over an hour trying to find the solution on the web, and I am beyond frustrated (my broken arm doesn't help). What would be the correlation between the annual salary of males and females at...

    Probability of Unconventional Food Item Alleviating Medical Problem Multiple Times

    For about 2 years, a medical problem has more or less repeated, as follows: The problem normally lasts approximately 3 weeks and then goes away for 3 or 4 days and then repeats. When eating a non-conventional food item, the problem goes away in approximately 2 days instead of 3 weeks...

    Linear relationships between variables from different, but related data sets.

    I had a quick question. And I am sorry if it seems elementary, but I just have so much trouble with statistical analysis (I use R when I do it generally though). I am trying to test the correlation between the % coral cover at each of my study sites, and the % of coral in sediment collected...

    correlation coefficient between 2 autocorrelated time series

    Hi I have 2 time series each 19 data points long which have a correlation coefficient of 0.5. Great! Problem. The time series are both display a large autocorrelation at 1 lag, small at 2 lag and zero at 3. How can I calculate the correlation coefficient taking this autocorrelation into...

    Meta-analysis: different information about relationships between two variables

    Hello everyone I need help with my meta-analysis. I have collected all the studies that I wish to include and would like to take Pearson's correlation as effect size. However, many of the studies do not report correlations, but rather path analysis or SEM coefficients or regression...

    Correlation between two non stationary time series

    Hey everyone, I'm trying to figure out if there is significant correlation between two non stationary time series (e.g. temperature on a a given day and icecream sales). Could someone please propose a method. There are so many different methods i read about online im not sure which to go...

    Logistic Regression Problem

    Hi! My collegue is developing a logistic regression to predict the probability of a customer taking up a particular credit card. Let's call the credit card the gold card, so his dependent variable on the left side is GoldCard = 0,1. On the right side of his equation he is also including a...

    Puzzled by Correlation

    This is a real problem although I'm using a made-up statistic (# of apples) for this. Say I am interested in how many apples people eat in a year. This varies by many factors. First I look at the country difference (the US vs. Canada). From historical data of the average number of apples...

    Incorporating correlation between parameters using variation-covariance matrix

    Hi all, My colleagues and I are working on a project (i.e., health economics model) where we have fitted parametric curves (using Weibull, Exponential, Gompertz, Log-logistic, Log-normal, and Gamma distributions) to Kaplan-Meier data. In the project, we have estimated various survival curves...
