Some general comments* To have a correlation, you must have two variables. This is NOT a correlation: “everyone disapproves of public funding of minority language programs”. A correlation would be: “population X is more strongly in favor than population Y of public funding” or “population X shows more approval of private funding that public funding.” State your correlations clearly in general terms before going into more details. You do need to include some of the more interesting numbers (but you can put these in parentheses). For example: “Population Z generally shows stronger support for public funding of minority languages that population X (average scores 5.65 and 4.5, respectively).” DO include numerical data from the Excel spreadsheets. *These general comments come from our experience grading your outlines, as well as past class
