Relationships
Broader Term: 

n. ~ Information that has been organized, structured, and stored into tables of rows and columns (flat files)
so that related data elements from different tables can be manipulated and extracted for various purposes.

The relational database model was developed by Edgar Codd about 1970. Each table consists of named columns (attributes). A logical record consists of fields taken from related rows in different tables.
