**The engineer uses the Pearson correlation to examine the strength and direction of the linear relationship between each pair of variables.**

- Open the sample data, AluminumProperties. MTW.
- Choose Stat > Basic Statistics >
**Correlation**. - In Variables, enter Hydrogen Porosity Strength.
- Click OK.

People also ask, how do you do Spearman correlation in Minitab?

**Calculate Spearman's rank correlation coefficient when you have ordinal text data**

- Choose Stat > Tables > Cross Tabulation and Chi-Square.
- In Rows, enter C1 . In Columns, enter C2 .
- Click Other Stats.
- Check Correlation coefficients for ordinal categories.
- Click OK in each dialog box.

Similarly, how is Pearson correlation calculated? **The formula for conducting the Pearson correlation coefficient value follows these steps:**

- Make a chart with your data for two variables, labeling the variables (x) and (y), and add three more columns labeled (xy), (x^2), and (y^2).
- Complete the chart using basic multiplication of the variable values.

People also ask, what is the formula for Correlation Coefficient?

Use the **formula** (z_{y})_{i} = (y_{i} – ȳ) / s _{y} and calculate a standardized value for each y_{i}. Add the products from the last step together. Divide the sum from the previous step by n – 1, where n is the total number of points in our set of paired data. The result of all of this is the **correlation coefficient** r.

What is Spearman correlation used for?

**Spearman correlation** is often **used to** evaluate relationships involving ordinal variables. For example, you might **use** a **Spearman correlation** to evaluate whether the order in which employees complete a test exercise is related to the number of months they have been employed.
