Correlation and Linear RegressionReferences, Learning Guides, Etc. / Tutorial
From datascience+: “Before going into complex model building, looking at data relation is a sensible step to understand how your different variables interact together. Correlation looks at trends shared between two variables, and regression looks at relation between a predictor (independent variable) and a response (dependent) variable.”

DataCamp – Correlation and RegressionCourses / Interactive tutorial style course
From DataCamp: “Ultimately, data analysis is about understanding relationships among variables. Exploring data with multiple variables requires new, more complex tools, but enables a richer set of comparisons. In this course, you will learn how to describe relationships between two numerical quantities. You will characterize these relationships graphically, in the form of summary statistics, and through simple linear regression models.” This course consists of five chapters: Correlation and regression Correlation Simple … Continue Reading
