The mean and the standard deviation, for example, convey useful information regarding the nature of the measurements related to a variable in isolation. There are, of course, statistical measures that provide useful information regarding possible relationships between variables. The correlation between two random variables is a measure of the linear relationship between them. The population linear correlation parameter ρ is a commonly used measure of how well two variables are linearly related.
