With reference to the scatterplot representation, setting the point (µ(X), µ(Y )) as the origin, Cov(X, Y ) tends to be positive when most of the observations are in the upper right-hand and lower left-hand quadrants. Conversely, it tends to be negative when most of the observations are in the lower right-hand and upper left-hand quadrants. Notice that the covariance is directly calculable from the data matrix. In fact, since there is a covariance for each pair of variables, this calculation gives rise to a new data matrix, called the variance–covariance matrix.

This number is called the absolute frequency. The levels and their frequencies give the frequency distribution. The observations related to the variable being examined can be indicated as follows: x1 , x2 , . . , xN , omitting the index related to the variable itself. The distinct values between the N observations (levels) are indicated as x1∗ , x2∗ , . . , xk∗ (k ≤ N ). 4 where ni indicates the number of times level xi∗ appears (its absolute frequency). Note that k i=1 ni = N , where N is the number of classified units.

Var(Xh ) 48 APPLIED DATA MINING The covariance is an absolute index; that is, it can identify the presence of a relationship between two quantities but it says little about the degree of this relationship. In other words, to use the covariance as an exploratory index, it need to be normalised, making it a relative index. The maximum value that Cov(X, Y ) can assume is σx σy , the product of the two standard deviations of the variables.
