UK Accounting Glossary
In statistics, there is a negative relationship or inverse relationship between two variables if higher values of one variable tend to be associated with lower values of the other.
An Inverse relationship refers to a type of correlation that exists between two different numbers. In the instance of an inverse relationship when one number has a value that rises, then the other will correspondingly fall in the value of the first number.
An inverse correlation, also known as negative correlation (or an inverse relationship), is a contrary relationship between two variables such that they move in opposite directions. For example, with variables A and B, as A increases, B decreases, and as A decreases, B increases.
