This week, we are looking at the relationship between quantitative variables. We will concentrate on two variables for the purpose of this Discussion. We will be looking at the directionpositive or negativeand the strengthweak, moderate, or strongof the correlation. There are no hard and fast rules on what numbers mean weak, moderate, or strong correlations; however, here is a rule of thumb:
0 < 0.4 weak 0.4 < 0.6 moderate 0.6 1 strong, where the numbers can be positive or negative. Remember that you can only prove that one variable causes another by using an experiment. Be skeptical of observational studies that claim causation.

In order to do this weeks Discussion, you will need to have two quantitative variables that you think might be related. In other words, changes in one variable result in changes in the other variable. If you do not have two variables like this in your data set, add another variable.
