Negative Correlation

Home/Negative Correlation

A negative correlation is a relationship between two variables where they change in the opposite direction, such that as the value of one variable increases, the other decreases and vice versa. An example of this might be the financial relationship between the owner of a business and the employees, if all other things are equal, the more the owner pays the employees the less profit for the owner, thus elements within this type of relation are going in the opposite direction creating a counter balancing dynamic.
