Correlational Study

A correlational study is a non-experimental method used to measure how strong the relationship is between two or more variables. There are two types of correlation: positive correlation (as one variable increases/decreases, so the other variable increases/decreases); and negative correlation (as one variable increases, so the other variable decreases). Psychologists use a statistic called a correlation coefficient to measure this strength.
