Abstract: Investigation of quasar emission line properties and relationships between spectral parameters is important for understanding the physical mechanisms that originate inside different regions of the active galactic nuclei. In this paper, we investigate the optical spectral parameters of type 1 quasars taken from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 7 Quasar Catalog (Shen et al., 2011). Spectral parameters, such are equivalent widths and full widths at half maximum of both narrow and broad lines are taken into account. We perform the analysis of correlation matrix and principal component analysis of our sample. We obtain that the narrow line Baldwin effect is significant enough and deserves further investigation. We provide the correlation coefficients and slope values for Baldwin effect in several narrow lines.
