# How do I calculate the correlation coefficient in Excel?

## Calculate correlation coefficient in Excel

For linear correlations you can install the data analysis toolpak by going to options -> add-ins -> hit u2018gou2019 at the bottom -> check the analysis toolpak and hit ok -> now navigate to your data tab and select data analysis on the top right -> lastly select correlation and specify your data.

,That will leverage built-in excel functionality to calculate your coefficients which I assume is what youu2019re looking for since you specified Excel.

Otherwise the formula is pretty easy to reproduce with basic excel in-line functions and can be found with a quick google search.

## How to find Pearsons correlation coefficient on calculator

Start by converting both of your variables to z scores.

(Z = X - Mean of X),next, multiply the z scores for each pair of scores together.

(Zx*Zy),third, add together all the z products (sum of all Zx*Zy),Last, divide by the number of pairs.

## Calculate correlation coefficient in R

Given data is insufficient to compute correlation.

,The values of u03a3X and u03a3Y are also required to compute r.
