Introduction Correlation is a statistical technique that measures the linear association between two variables. In this study I use correlation to measure two variables whose properties changes with time, not necessarily following a linear relationship. I conducted a survey by to identify whether eating junk food at a young age correlates to eating junk food in adulthood. In this study, junk food is defined as any fast food or especially sugary and fatty foods/snacks that have been processed. The variables for this study are; whether a respondent ate junk food while a child and still eats junk food as an adult and the second one is whether a respondent did not eat junk food as a child and as an adult as well. These two variables could be dependent but not correlated. The data of 10 respondents is collected by asking the following questions; 1) Have you eaten junk food as a child? 0 = No 1 = Yes 2) Do you currently eat junk food?

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
