Correlation of Bivariate Frequency Distribution

Consider the two way frequency table with marginal and joint distributions of the two variables X and Y.

Here

or simply

Hence,

Note. For large data, the two way frequency table is advantageous.

 

Example 8. Calculate the correlation coefficient from the following table.

Solution. Consider the following table :

 

The correlation coefficient is
