  • a Correlation is significant at the 0.01 level (2-tailed). Perfect: If the value is near ±1, then it said to be a perfect correlation: as one variable increases, the other variable tends to also increase (if positive) or decrease (if negative). High degree: If the coefficient value lies between ±0.50 and ±1, then it is said to be a strong correlation. Moderate degree: If the value lies between ±0.30 and ±0.49, then it is said to be a medium correlation. Low degree: When the value lies below + 0.29, then it is said to be a small correlation. No correlation: When the value is zero.
