When I came across the word concordance, after I had looked up on a handful of dictionary I concluded that they have similar sense with the word accord and correlation but not synonym though.
But I would like to ask if I can rewrite a sentence which contains the word concordance in the following passage which I extracted from a tuition website.
Substantial evidence suggests that there is a genetically inherited predisposition to schizophrenia. For example, there is a concordance rate of about 48 percent for identical twins. The concordance rate for fraternal twins is considerably less, about 17 percent. Concordance rate refers to the percentage of both people in a pair having a certain trait or disorder. A person who has two parents with schizophrenia has about a 46 percent chance of developing schizophrenia. This probability is very high compared to the roughly 1 percent chance of developing schizophrenia in the general population.
The passage is already explaining what concordance rate means and I can see we cannot just replace the word concordance with the word correlation. Because I took statistics lectures before I don't think there is a term correlation rate but we can say correlation coefficient which is between -1 and 1. So I'll give a more simple example, for example I can say off the top of my head :
There is a correlation /link/ relation between crime and drug abuse.
Can we say :
There is a concordance / accord between crime and drug abuse.
So I need help more on the usage of the words concordance and accord in this sense.
