Better than xkcd: A fun site of statistics about unrelated stuff

I just discovered a humorous site by a guy who uses AI to search data of totally unrelated subjects and find silly statistical correlations.

For example, did you know that there is a correlation between the number of associates degrees earned in the liberal arts, and the number of google searches for "tummy ache "?
.Associates degrees awarded in Liberal arts correlates with Google searches for 'tummy ache'

Oh, and there is a correlation between sales of margarine and the divorce rate in Maine.
And hundreds of other examples. :slight_smile:

After drawing a graph (xkcd style), the site then produces an AI-generated “scholarly” paper.
If you click on “data details” under each graph it shows you how it works, and has a “try it yourself” explanation, showing the Python code you can run.

Have fun!

Sounds sorta like an audience participation version of the IgNoble awards and the Annals of Improbable Research.

Should be fun.

Does it always use years as the independent variable?
