Learn how to unearth powerful insights buried in your data
The #1 eBook for Associations and Correlations
These types of analysis are some of the most used – and misunderstood – statistical techniques.
Most results you’ll encounter are wrong, and for a very good reason.
In this book you’re going to learn:
- how to avoid the most common pitfalls
- how to make sure you get the correct results first time, every time
- a variety of the most used association and correlation tests
Associations and correlations are ways of describing how a pair of variables change together as a result of their connection. In other words, if one of your variables changes, the other is likely to change too. These types of analysis are some of the most used–and misunderstood – statistical techniques. Most results you’ll encounter are wrong, and for a very good reason.
In this book we’re going to understand just why this is, avoid the most common pit-falls and learn how to make sure you get the correct results first time, every time.
Here, you’ll learn a holistic method of discovering the story of all the relationships in your data by guiding you through a variety of the most used association and correlation tests – and helping you to choose them correctly.
The holistic method is about selecting the most appropriate univariate and multivariate tests and using them together in a single strategic framework to give you confidence that the story you discover is likely to be the true story of your data.
Why should you care what I say?
I have worked with data for most of my adult life. I have worked with data from the Visible Human Project, the Human Genome Project, a major European Soil Database, Medical Imaging Data, and loads and loads of Data from Clinical Studies Research.
I now help other scientists and business analysts just like you get the story of their data quickly and easily.

The basics and details of associations and correlations, why people confuse them (endlessly), and why you should not. The author lays out a practical, easy to follow approach to conducting analyses that keeps you on track throughout your work. And it includes performing computations manually, which is incredibly enlightening . The author presents the information in an uncomplicated way so you can really focus on learning the statistics and not on the underpinning math and theory. That's what I call practical!
