  •  a word of caution about this survey (1+ / 0-)

    it may or may not be of any note. W/O seeing it and its design it is hard to tell. But I can say that the words " suggests it may " suggests (yes, a pun) a lack of statistical significance. Lots of correlations mean nothing. Some DO mean something as a researcher I am always a skeptic and I look forward to seeing the specifics of the survey.

    •  I think it's more likely that they used the term (0+ / 0-)

      "suggests" in order to dodge any sort of criticism... but I doubt there's really any serious question about what the data really means.

      •  w/o the details (0+ / 0-)

        it could mean anything. and if there were real statistical evidence I am pretty sure they would have used a term such as significance, evidence, or at least ID a correlation.
