## T.R. Jain and V.K. Ohri Solutions for Class 11 Statistics for Economics Chapter 12 – Correlation

### Question 1

From the following data, compute the Coefficient of Correlation between X and Y series:

 X-series Y-series Number of items 6 6 Arithmetic Mean 350 138 Squares of Deviations from Mean 19 94

The summation of the product of the deviations of X and Y series from their respective arithmetic mean is 41.

Solution:

Given,

N = 6, $$\bar{X}$$= 350, $$\bar{Y}$$ = 138, = 19, = 94, xy = 41

r = $$\frac{\sum xy}{\sqrt{\sum x^{2}\times \sum y^{2}}}$$

Substituting the values, we get

r = $$\frac{41}{\sqrt{19\times94}}= \frac{41}{\sqrt{1,786}}=\frac{41}{42.26}=0.97$$

Coefficient of Correlation (r) = +0.97

### Question 2

What is correlation?

Solution

According to Boddington, wherever some definite connection exists between two or more groups, classes, series, or data, there is said to be a correlation.
