Rank correlation is an index describing the influence between variables. This is a method to describe a Bayesian belief network. The method used in the Uninet software is applied here. The correlation is a rank (Spearman) correlation between the variable that is being described (the child) and a parent variable, possibly conditional on one or more other parents.

Typical locations are listed. The result of Coefficient is the rank correlation coefficient [-1,1]. The results of other locations, which refer to objects, are the identifiers (Obj.id in the Opasnet base) of the objects.
