Dear all,

I have following question regarding the shown picture and the shown „significance and correlation between activities”

I do not fully understand the „significance and correlation"  with a activity itself (e.g. the 2nd activity "Suche nach Immobilie complete" have 0,039 significance and 0,925 correlation???????? what does this mean????

FYI: I read also the following paper in this context:

But I don´t find a answer to my question.

    Dear Jesko,

    Thanks for your question and welcome on the forum!

    An arrow from an activity to itself means that the activity was repeated, e.g. 2 (or more times) in a row observed.

    For more details on the metrics you could read the PhD thesis of Christian Gunther, although I think the article you mention already explains it.
