From someone who knows how to do economics. Or at least statistics.
Or maybe it\’s even just someone who knows how to us excel.
I\’ve got two sets of data about US States.
One is the population of each state.
The other is the Gini (a measure of inequality) for each State.
What I want is one plotted against the other.
Quite simply, I want to try and see whether there\’s a correlation between the amount of inequality and the number of people. I would, after all, expect greater variance in incomes the larger the number of people (as we expect greater variance in height, weight, sexual prowess and all the rest the larger the population).
Anyone able to do that simply?
Update: Thanks, this has now been done. Yes, there does seem to be, eyeballing the graph, a connection between gini and population size. That\’s what I wanted.
