Narrowercurvilinear correlation, nonlinear correlation, skew correlationAny correlation in which the rates of change of the variables is not constant
negative correlation, indirect correlationA correlation in which large values of one variable are associated with small values of the other
partial correlationA correlation between two variables when the effects of one or more related variables are removed
positive correlation, direct correlationA correlation in which large values of one variable are associated with large values of the other and small with small
spurious correlationA correlation between two variables (e.g., between the number of electric motors in the home and grades at school) that does not result from any direct relation between them (buying electric motors will not raise grades) but from their relation to other variables
