Note that the adjustment required for the sample standard deviation no longer pertains because the same adjustment should be used in both the numerator and denominator of r, and thus cancels out. The correlation coefficient takes on a maximum value of plus or minus one when Y is a linear function of X, the case of perfect positive or negative correlation. A large positive or negative value of r signifies a strong linear dependence between X and Y . When r is large, prediction of Y from X is feasible; when r = 0, (linear) prediction of Y based on X is no more accurate than prediction of Y when X is unknown.
