Types of correlational research design

Types of correlational research design

 

there are 3 types of correlational research which are positive correlational
research, negative correlational research, and no correlational research. Each
of these types is defined by peculiar characteristics.
● Positive Correlational Research
Positive correlational research is a research method involving 2 variables that
are statistically corresponding where an increase or decrease in 1 variable
creates a like change in the other. An example is when an increase in workers’
remuneration results in an increase in the prices of goods and services and vice
versa.
● Negative Correlational Research
Negative correlational research is a research method involving 2 variables that
are statistically opposite where an increase in one of the variables creates an
alternate effect or decrease in the other variable. An example of a negative
correlation is if the rise in goods and services causes a decrease in demand and
vice versa.
● Zero Correlational Research
Zero correlational research is a type of correlational research that involves 2
variables that are not necessarily statistically connected. In this case, a change
in one of the variables may not trigger a corresponding or alternate change in
the other variable.
