Good evening!

I am looking for the right test to analyze my data. I have got more than 3,500 observations which have two dimensions: Age (in integers and ranging from 14 to 70) and another parameter (also integers and ranging from 0 to 10).

What I want to test is, whether there is some correlation between these two dimensions. But unfortunately I have no idea, which test to choose. Is there a test, I can use for this?

Thanks and kind regards,
René
