Each of these scholars approached the problem of measuring "dependence" from the point of view of a mathematical analyst, but did not appear to see (so far as we can discern) possible practical relevance of the formulas they constructed. It is quite likely that too close attention to the theoretical analysis, with limited experience of empirical data, contributed to this unfortunate situation. ) is a quadratic function. Later, Bravais (1846), using a geometrical approach to derive the bivariate density function did mention the existence of a relationship ("correlation") being represented by the two variables, without giving the idea further discussion.

H. " This was interpreted that a certain amount of time must often elapse between the operation of cause and effect! (R. H. Hooker : Correlation of the Marriage-Rate with Trade, Journ. Royal Sta. Soc, 1901, p. 487) It should be noted that L. March (1859-1933), Director of "Statistique Generate de la France", in the paper Comparaison numerique de courbes statistiques, Journ. Soc. Stat, de Paris, 1905, pp. 265-277 and 306-311, constructed a "coefficient de dependance " based on elementary mathematical formulas, very similar to the Kendall's r.

Bowley. This interpretation was for many years dominant and accepted as an undisputable doctrine, almost carved in stone. U. Yule's "Theory of Correlation" (Journ. Roy. Stat. 813) is recommended for anyone interested in the problems of the origin, the evergreen meaning and applications of this widely used (and abused) concept. It should always be kept in mind that the theory of correlation has been constructed on the basis of the two-dimensional normal distribution. However transformation to normality is not always the best answer to the limitations of correlation coefficients.
