    No R gives the quality of the correlation

    r is comprised between -1 and +1

    An absolute value near of one means that the correlation is excellent. Suppose the two variables are x and y R=+1 means x proportional to y, r=-1 x inversely proportional to y. of course r^2 lies between 0 and 1 , 0 meaning no correlation , 1 excellent correlation

    Source(s): correlation coefficient
