If you are interested in the trend line statistics you can find them below.
Trend Lines Model
A linear trend model is computed for Percentage without Internet given Percentage in Poverty. The model may be significant at p <= 0.05.
|Model formula:||( Percentage in Poverty + intercept )|
|Number of modeled observations:||819|
|Number of filtered observations:||0|
|Model degrees of freedom:||2|
|Residual degrees of freedom (DF):||817|
|SSE (sum squared error):||2.56574|
|MSE (mean squared error):||0.0031404|
|p-value (significance):||< 0.0001|
Individual trend lines:
|Percentage without Internet||Percentage in Poverty||< 0.0001||817||Percentage in Poverty||0.922455||0.0354937||25.9893||< 0.0001|
The data for this visualization comes from the United States Census Bureau. It is gathered during the American Community Survey. I used 2015, 1 Year Estimates for each county with a population of more than 65,000 people. This can be found at American Fact Finder under Table S2801 and S1701. Once I had the data from the table, I cleaned it in Excel and used Tableau to create this visualization.
There are a couple of things worth noting when viewing this graphic. First, this is only the counties in the U.S. with a population of more than 65,000 people. Counties with less people than that are not available as a selectable geography in the ACS 1 year data files. Second, the percentage of poverty is only for people that the ACS could determine the poverty level. Finally, the percentage of people in poverty is a person level statistic and internet connection is a household level statistic. In some counties this could have an effect on the data, especially ones with above or below average household size.
