  • Heart Failure And Pneumonia

    As seen from the scatter plot above, the readmission rates from Pneumonia and Heart Failure has a positive correlation relationship. Both variables move in the same direction. In other words, as one variable increases, the other variable will also increase. As one variable decreases, the other variable will also decrease. Therefore, this means that Pneumonia and Heart Failure are positively correlated. Not only that, the readmission rates from Pneumonia and Heart Failure also have a strong…
