What is a Correlation Matrix?

A Correlation Matrix is a statistical tool that shows how different variables are related to each other. In the context of Marketing Mix Modeling, a Correlation Matrix is important because it helps understand the relationships between different marketing elements (like TV ads, online ads, radio spots) and business outcomes (like revenue or brand awareness).

This feature transforms your dataset into a visually engaging matrix, where each cell represents the strength of the relationship between two variables, ranging from -1 to +1. But it's not just about numbers, by clicking on a cell, you bring to life a detailed scatter plot, providing a visual story of how two variables correlate. This interactive approach makes it easier to grasp complex data relationships and extract meaningful insights for strategic decision-making.

The scatter plot is used when the analyst wants to understand the trend of a variable against, for example, the dependent variable, to discover whether there is some kind of strong correlation between the variables that they are analyzing. ScreenShot Tool -20240118182033.png
