+ - New Google Tool To Find Trend Correlations->

Submitted by Kilrah_il
Kilrah_il (1692978) writes "In 2008 Google found correlation between seasonal flu activity and certain search term, a finding that allowed it to track flu activity better and more rapidly than previous methods. Now, Google is offering a new tool, Google Correlate, that allows researched to do the same for other trends. "Using Correlate, you can upload your own data series and see a list of search terms whose popularity best corresponds with that real world trend." Of course, Google reminds us that correlation does not imply causation."
