Part vs. Partial correlation

Troubleshooting


Problem

What is the difference between a part and a partial correlation coefficient in the SPSS REGRESSION output?

Resolving The Problem

A part (sometimes called a semipartial) correlation is the correlation between an independent variable and the dependent variable after the linear effects of the other independent variables have been removed from the independent variable only. A partial correlation is the correlation between an independent variable and the dependent variable after the linear effects of the other variables have been removed from both the independent variable and the dependent variable
