zero-order correlation

a simple association between two variables that does not control for the possible influence of other variables. For example, consider the relationship between success selling computers and knowledge of how the Internet works. A zero-order correlation would examine the direct relationship between these two variables without taking into account other explanatory information, such as education level, sales experience, and so forth. Compare part correlation; partial correlation.
