Use the following website to calculate the correlation coefficient:  Pearson r. 


As a rule of thumb, the following guidelines on strength of relationship are often useful (though many experts would somewhat disagree on the choice of boundaries).


Value of r 

Strength of Relationship 

-1 to -0.5 or 0.5 to 1.0


-0.5 to -0.3 or 0.3 to 0.5


-0.3 to -0.1 or 0.1 to 0.3


-0.1 to 0.1 

None or very weak 


Correlation is only appropriate for examining the relationship between meaningful quantifiable data (e.g. air pressure, temperature) rather than categorical data such as gender, favorite color etc.
