Correlation coefficient between a measure and date using DAX

Hello,

 

I need to calculate the correlation coefficient between a measure price (y) and date (X) using DAX.

 

Please advise and if possible provide the DAX.

You can't use dates. Both values must be numeric.  Which correlation do you want to compute? Pearson?

My DAX statement was taken out of context.

Thanks for the article. Yes, need to do a Pearson correlation coefficient between a value and date. This should be possible, correct?

Should I convert date to unix timestamp would that work with the concept in your article?

yes, an epoch value would work.
