  • 24. Chronic Bullying Correlations Fairfax County 2011 Youth Survey
  • 25. Correlation Data• Cross-tabulations are when we look at the way students responded to multiple questions, for example when we look at results by demographics such as symptoms of depression by gender or the cross of two experiences such as symptoms of depression by substance use. Cross-tabulations of data do not imply cause and effect. Fairfax County 2011 Youth Survey 2525
  • 26. Correlation Data• The results do not imply that being a certain gender or using substances causes depression. The data indicate there is a correlation of the female gender reporting higher prevalence of reported depressive symptoms.• Similarly, youth who use substances are more likely to report symptoms of depression, but the results do NOT show if substance use causes depression or if depression leads to substance use.
