Correlation Graph 

For this project I wanted to see if there was a correlation between the average ACT score of a state (I ended up only using data from states that make the ACT mandatory testing) and the average annual temperatures of those states. 

I looked online and recorded the information I needed and used Google Sheets to make a graph. Here is the link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bo0g_C30Y4XEq8MwSF5tgUVIORJBRYoR-mwW0aOTlS0/edit?usp=sharing

From the data I used, there does seem to be a pretty high correlation, showing that the cooler a state is on average, the higher their average ACT score is. 

Below is a display of the same data on my graph in Sheets, but shown in a different way. The purple lines on this graph connects the states temp. to their ACT score. On this graph, the shorter the connecting line is, the greater the correlation. This graph also really highlights the main outliers of the data: Nevada and Louisiana

Also, because I know there has been issues with this, if the URL in my post doesn’t show as a link you can click on, just copy and paste into Google.

Pretty interesting. Makes sense to me why a lower temp would result in a higher score lol. If it was warmer I would want to be outside not doing school stuff.

Great! Some call this the “Mediterranean effect” a nice way of saying warmer weather creates laziness…

This is very interesting ! The graph is easy to understand as well. 9/10

This such an interesting piece of information! I would have never guessed this that there would be a correlation between ACT scores and temperature of states. What was the correlation (in numbers)?

This looks very interesting. I give it a 9/10. Somehow the link that you posted is just showing up as regular words. I don’t know why that is.

The correlation – in numbers - is (negative) .64
