## Function name:

CORREL

## Category:

Statistical Analysis

## Summary:

Returns the correlation coefficient between two data sets.

## Syntax:

CORREL(**Data1**; **Data2**)

## Returns:

Returns a real value which is the correlation coefficient of values in **Data1** and **Data2**. It returns a value in range [-1,1].

## Arguments:

**Data1** is a reference to a range of cells which is considered the first data set.

**Data2** is a reference to a range of cells which is considered the second data set.

- If a cell contains text, logical values, or empty cells, then the function ignores these values.
- If
**Data1**and**Data2**have different number of data points then the function returns an error value. - If any of the arguments is empty, or if the standard deviation of their values equals zero, CORREL returns a division(#DIV/0!) error.

## Additional details:

- The formula for CORREL is:

Correl(X,Y) =

where x̄ and ӯ are mean values.

- CORREL and PEARSON functions perform the same operation.

## Examples:

Data1 | Data2 | |
---|---|---|

1 | 195 | 200 |

2 | 151 | 180 |

3 | 148 | 178 |

4 | 189 | 165 |

5 | 183 | 192 |

6 | 154 | 144 |

Formula | Description | Returns |
---|---|---|

=CORREL(A1:A6;B1:B6) | The function calculates the correlation coefficient as a measure of the linear correlation of the two data sets, Data1 and Data2. |
