The variable hosp1 has 2 columns: Latitude and Longitude. We want to see if the pairs of data share a correlation, i.e. is there a relationship between Latitude and Longitude? Does increasing the first variable affect the second variable?

**A positive correlation**means as Variable 1 increase Variable 2 increases**A negative correlation**means as Variable 1 increases Variable 2 decreases**No correlation**mean that increasing Variable 1 has no general effect on Variable 2

```
cor(hosp1$Latitude,hosp1$Longitude)
[1] -0.1113144
```

So the function is

`cor()`

And **hosp1$Latitude** is the Latitude column and **hosp1$Longitude** is the Longitude column
