9-1 Discussion: Correlation and Regression
Use the Library and identify a peer-reviewed public health journal article or data results from the CDC or other public health government websites that include a scatterplot and/or correlation statistic measuring the association between two continuous variables. Define the two continuous variables and describe the association between them using the scatterplot and/or correlation statistic. What information is this scatterplot and/or correlation statistic telling us about the public health issue? What other information might you need to clarify the association between these two variables and the public health issue?
In response to your peers, state whether their interpretation makes sense to you or what additional questions you have and discuss what other data and statistical analysis would help clarify the association and public health issue.
