About Correlated

Are apartment dwellers more likely to read comic books? Do people who square dance have higher-than-average auto accident rates? Are people who drive domestic cars more likely to prefer Coke over Pepsi?

Correlated helps discover surprising correlations between seemingly unrelated things.

By answering each day's survey question, you'll help us make new correlations.

At the end of the day, the results of the survey are compared with the results of all previous surveys, and the two outcomes with the strongest link are highlighted. (Learn more about how this is calculated)

It's fun. It's painless. It's free. Enjoy.

Shaun Gallagher, Correlated founder
