It is commonly thought that there should be a relationship between these two variables, either because more profitable companies can afford to hire better chief executives (and pay them more) or because executive talent leads to higher profits. 3 is an XY-plot of these two variables. Each point on the chart represents a particular company. e. the vertical one) gives us the compensation of the chief executive in that company. e. the horizontal one) gives us the profit of the company.

First, however, let us briefly list some of the numerical properties of correlation.

The mode Basic data handling 31 is probably the least commonly used of the three measures of location introduced here. To understand the median, imagine that all the area of the histogram is shaded. The median is the point on the X-axis which divides this shaded area precisely in half. e. e. the median). It turns out it is also the mean. 50) and mode ($1,000) are quite different.
