a.Given that the authors calculated correlation coefficients, what kind of variables aredepression, anxiety, and externalizing? Explain your answer.
b. What is the correlation coefficient for the association between depression and anxiety? Explainwhat this correlation coefficient tells us about the relation between these variables.
b.What is the correlation coefficient for the association between anxiety and externalizing?Explain what this correlation coefficient tells us about the relation between thesevariables.
c.The partial correlation of anxiety and externalizing is 0.17, controlling for the variable ofdepression. How is this different from the original Pearson correlation coefficientbetween these two variables?
d.Why is the partial correlation coefficient different from the original Pearson correlationcoefficient between these two variables?.
e.What did we learn by calculating a partial correlation?f.Why can we not draw causal conclusions with respect to these findings?
