Give a plausible example of a three-variable research problem in which partial correlation would be a useful analysis. Define X1, X2, and Y. Make sure that you indicate which of your three variables is the "controlled for" variable ( X2). What results might you expect to obtain for this partial correlation, and how would you interpret your results (e.g., spurious correlation, mediation, moderation, and so on)? 600 words.
The response should include a reference list. Double-space, using Times New Roman 12 pnt font, one-inch margins, and APA style of writing and citations.
