Hi Jenny!

So if i understand your datafile corect you have 960 case for a year. Any you have 43 years.. Yes?

I'm not sure you should use correlation in this situation because of the autocorrelation of the data. There are big autocorrelation on spatial data's like what you use, and there are also a very big autocorrelation in time series data. I think you have to decompose your time series, and you have to cut down, the trend (and maybe some kind of sesonality), and than for the residuals you should do a correlation. You have to filter out the autocorrelation on the spatial data too, some way..

And because of the above problems, don't calculate correlation for the entierly databases!
