Exercise: Head circumference and height, answer 4

Question 4: What do you think the value of the value of r might be for the relationship between head circumference and height?

Suggested answer

The relationship can be seen clearly, but is best of moderate strength. I would estimate r to be somewhere between 0.3 and 0.5. In fact, r = 0.40.
