Now we're ready to frame and perform the experiment. Let's walk through the steps to do that one more time.

## Formulating an initial hypothesis

In this case, our hypothesis is that there is a relationship between the per capita gross national income and the rate of burglaries. We could go further and make the hypothesis stronger by specifying that higher GNI correlates to a higher burglary rate, somewhat counter-intuitively.

• H1: There is a relationship between the per capita ...
