serial correlation

same as autocorrelation, but occasionally used to designate lagged correlations between two separate series of observations, for example, the correlation between xi, and yi+1 in the series x1, x2, . . . and y1, y2, . . . . The serial correlation coefficient is the product- moment correlation coefficient for the lagged correlations or for the correlations between series.
