Unit 8 Discussion: Correlation Question 8 A Pick any twovariables that you feel may be related and estimate what you thinkthe strength of the correlation coefficient would be for those twovariables. In your response estimate the value of r. For examplespecify a strong (.7 to .9) medium (.4 to .6) or low (0 to .3)value for r. The value of the coefficient can be positive ornegative. For example consider an increase in police patrols in aneighborhood and the number of burglaries that occur in thatneighborhood. I would say that would be a strong inverserelationship with an r value of -0.8; as one (patrols) increasesthe other (burglary rate) goes down. Describe the factors that youthink would contribute to why the variables would have therelationship that you estimate it to be.
