I'm trying to find a correlation measure for the number of Wikipedia pages an entity (an article) has been translated to vs number of links that point to that page (both measures that can point to the popularity of a page). Is it possible to correlate them?

For instance I have

Work, links, wikipediaTranslatedPages
The name of the rose, 500, 53
  • $\begingroup$ yes, you can also use a scatter plot with the features "links" and "wikipediaTranslatedPages" $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


Here you can find an introduction to scatter plot.

You can read the graph as a correlation. Follow the immage you can define what kind of correlation is there between the two variable (image source)

enter image description here

  1. positive correlation (0.7 - 1): if one variable increases the other increases
  2. negative correlatio (-0.7 - -1): if one variable increases, the other decreases

Of course, if you want the precise value of the correlation you have to use the specific calculation library, according to the language you are using.
