    Correlation analysis mainly studies whether there is some dependence relationship between phenomena, and discusses the correlative characteristics and extent of them. It is a statistical method to study the correlation between variables.

And it has been applied effectively in social investigation, business analysis, public management, medical diagnosis, and so on.
