Use Partial correlation when you suspect the relationship between 2 variables to be influenced by other variables. The partial correlation coefficient is said to be adjusted or corrected for the influence by the different covariates.
- Select the variables of interest.
- Optionally select a filter to include a subset of cases.
The results for Partial correlation include:
- Sample size: the number of (selected) data pairs
- Correlation coefficient: Partial correlation coefficient, with P-value
The Partial correlation coefficient is also reported in the results of Multiple regression.
