In fact, many people are unaware that a correlation can be insignificant. They jam their data into a computer, calculate the correlation, and blindly believe the result.

Suppose we have two vectors, x and y, with values from normal populations. 8352458 But that is naïve. 05, so we conclude that the correlation is unlikely to be significant. You can also check the correlation by using the confidence interval.

Xn, yn). You want to create a scatter plot of the pairs. Solution If your data is held in two parallel vectors, x and y, use them as arguments of plot: > plot(x, y) If your data is held in a (two-column) data frame, plot the data frame: > plot(dfrm) Discussion A scatter plot is usually my first attack on a new dataset. It’s a quick way to see the relationship, if any, between x and y. Creating the scatter plot is easy: > plot(x, y) The plot function does not return anything. Rather, its purpose is to draw a plot of the (x, y) pairs in the graphics window.
