To lift the veil on the cosmic conspiracy behind the connection between the distance from Neptune to Mercury and petroleum consumption in Azerbaijan, we embarked on a research endeavor that was as multidimensional as the universe itself. Our methodology combined the precision of astrological computations with the earthly scrutiny of energy consumption data, creating a cosmic cocktail that could rival the concoctions of the most imaginative mixologist.
First, we sourced data on the distances between Neptune and Mercury from the archives of Astropy, utilizing the astronomical knowledge distilled within its digital confines. By crunching numbers that were light-years apart, we aimed to pinpoint the celestial positions and their potential impact on the energy consumption landscape of distant lands.
Next, we delved into the terrestrial intricacies of petroleum consumption in Azerbaijan, utilizing the Energy Information Administration as our guide through the labyrinth of fossil fuel figures. We sifted through decades of data, recognizing that while oil reserves might be finite, the oversight of statistical tabulation and analysis is infinite.
In merging these disparate realms of astrological gyrations and petroleum patterns, we applied a statistical alchemy that would make even Isaac Newton raise an inquisitive eyebrow. Employing the venerable tools of correlation analysis and regression modeling, we wove the threads of celestial distances and earthly energy demands into a cosmic tapestry of data-driven deduction.
Our journey through the cosmos and hydrocarbon consumption was not without its detours. To account for potential confounding variables, we also integrated factors such as economic fluctuations, geopolitical events, and perhaps even the occasional cosmic disruption caused by a rogue asteroid or a mischievous comet.
With ample precautions taken to navigate the asteroid belts of methodological pitfalls, we employed robust statistical techniques to establish the correlation coefficient and determine the significance of our findings. Through these analytical maneuvers, we sought to distinguish between celestial serendipity and genuine cosmic causality, all while keeping a watchful eye on the whimsical dance of uncertainty lurking in the cosmic shadows.
Lastly, we bore witness to a statistical spectacle akin to the grand cosmic ballet, as the correlation coefficient of 0.7977838 leapt from the data like a shooting star streaking across the night sky. With a p-value of less than 0.01, our discovery defied the statistical odds in a manner that would make even the most stoic of statisticians crack a celestial grin.
In this stellar saga of methodology, it became clear that our research journey was not merely an exploration of numbers, but a celestial odyssey that unearthed a cosmic correlation both delightful and confounding. Join us, fellow enthusiasts of scientific whimsy, as we unveil the uncharted territories where astrophysics and econometrics intersect, and where Neptune's celestial twirls may just be more than a matter of astronomical happenstance.

The distance between Neptune and MercuryDetailed data title: The average distance between Neptune and Mercury as measured on the first day of each month

Petroluem consumption in Azerbaijan
Detailed data title: Volume of petroluem consumption consumed in Azerbaijan in millions of barrels per day

See what else correlates with Petroluem consumption in Azerbaijan
Correlation is a measure of how much the variables move together. If it is 0.99, when one goes up the other goes up. If it is 0.02, the connection is very weak or non-existent. If it is -0.99, then when one goes up the other goes down. If it is 1.00, you probably messed up your correlation function.
r^{2} = 0.6364590 (Coefficient of determination)
This means 63.6% of the change in the one variable (i.e., Petroluem consumption in Azerbaijan) is predictable based on the change in the other (i.e., The distance between Neptune and Mercury) over the 30 years from 1992 through 2021.
p < 0.01, which is statistically significant(Null hypothesis significance test)
The p-value is 1.3E-7. 0.0000001295434863581556300000
The p-value is a measure of how probable it is that we would randomly find a result this extreme. More specifically the p-value is a measure of how probable it is that we would randomly find a result this extreme if we had only tested one pair of variables one time.
But I am a p-villain. I absolutely did not test only one pair of variables one time. I correlated hundreds of millions of pairs of variables. I threw boatloads of data into an industrial-sized blender to find this correlation.
Who is going to stop me? p-value reporting doesn't require me to report how many calculations I had to go through in order to find a low p-value!
On average, you will find a correaltion as strong as 0.8 in 1.3E-5% of random cases. Said differently, if you correlated 7,719,416 random variables You don't actually need 7 million variables to find a correlation like this one. I don't have that many variables in my database. You can also correlate variables that are not independent. I do this a lot.
p-value calculations are useful for understanding the probability of a result happening by chance. They are most useful when used to highlight the risk of a fluke outcome. For example, if you calculate a p-value of 0.30, the risk that the result is a fluke is high. It is good to know that! But there are lots of ways to get a p-value of less than 0.01, as evidenced by this project.
In this particular case, the values are so extreme as to be meaningless. That's why no one reports p-values with specificity after they drop below 0.01.
Just to be clear: I'm being completely transparent about the calculations. There is no math trickery. This is just how statistics shakes out when you calculate hundreds of millions of random correlations.
with the same 29 degrees of freedom, Degrees of freedom is a measure of how many free components we are testing. In this case it is 29 because we have two variables measured over a period of 30 years. It's just the number of years minus ( the number of variables minus one ), which in this case simplifies to the number of years minus one.
you would randomly expect to find a correlation as strong as this one.
[ 0.61, 0.9 ] 95% correlation confidence interval (using the Fisher z-transformation)
The confidence interval is an estimate the range of the value of the correlation coefficient, using the correlation itself as an input. The values are meant to be the low and high end of the correlation coefficient with 95% confidence.
This one is a bit more complciated than the other calculations, but I include it because many people have been pushing for confidence intervals instead of p-value calculations (for example: NEJM. However, if you are dredging data, you can reliably find yourself in the 5%. That's my goal!
All values for the years included above: If I were being very sneaky, I could trim years from the beginning or end of the datasets to increase the correlation on some pairs of variables. I don't do that because there are already plenty of correlations in my database without monkeying with the years.
Still, sometimes one of the variables has more years of data available than the other. This page only shows the overlapping years. To see all the years, click on "See what else correlates with..." link above.

Why this works
- Data dredging: I have 25,153 variables in my database. I compare all these variables against each other to find ones that randomly match up. That's 632,673,409 correlation calculations! This is called “data dredging.” Instead of starting with a hypothesis and testing it, I instead abused the data to see what correlations shake out. It’s a dangerous way to go about analysis, because any sufficiently large dataset will yield strong correlations completely at random.
- Lack of causal connection: There is probably
Because these pages are automatically generated, it's possible that the two variables you are viewing are in fact causually related. I take steps to prevent the obvious ones from showing on the site (I don't let data about the weather in one city correlate with the weather in a neighboring city, for example), but sometimes they still pop up. If they are related, cool! You found a loophole.
no direct connection between these variables, despite what the AI says above. This is exacerbated by the fact that I used "Years" as the base variable. Lots of things happen in a year that are not related to each other! Most studies would use something like "one person" in stead of "one year" to be the "thing" studied. - Observations not independent: For many variables, sequential years are not independent of each other. If a population of people is continuously doing something every day, there is no reason to think they would suddenly change how they are doing that thing on January 1. A simple
Personally I don't find any p-value calculation to be 'simple,' but you know what I mean.
p-value calculation does not take this into account, so mathematically it appears less probable than it really is. - Y-axis doesn't start at zero: I truncated the Y-axes of the graph above. I also used a line graph, which makes the visual connection stand out more than it deserves.
Nothing against line graphs. They are great at telling a story when you have linear data! But visually it is deceptive because the only data is at the points on the graph, not the lines on the graph. In between each point, the data could have been doing anything. Like going for a random walk by itself!
Mathematically what I showed is true, but it is intentionally misleading. Below is the same chart but with both Y-axes starting at zero.
