Linear Correlation

Home/Linear Correlation

A linear correlation describes a relation between elements where the ratio of change between the variables stays constant over time - thus creating a straight line when plotted. For example, there is often a linear relationship between the distance one has to travel and how long it takes to get to the destination; if the destination is twice as far it will take twice as long to drive there, if it is ten times further it will take ten times as long to get there etc.
