Previously the Carousal wasn’t working so here I am back at testing it

Binary variable comparisons

Comparison of correlations

The matrices below show:

1) Static correlations between pairs of variables for all patients at any time, in the real and synthetic data.

2) Dynamic correlations between variables in the real and synthetic data. Time series for each patient were linearly decomposed into trends (indicating a general upward or downward slope) and cycles (indicating periodic patterns). Correlations were then computed between trends and cycles for all patients.
